Lara Barak

Lara joined the Alumni and Young Professionals Committee of the Global Leadership Council in 2016. She has an MBA from Columbia Business School and earned a bachelor’s degree in Art History from New York University. Lara currently works at Citibank on the FinTech team. She has previously worked at American Express and at Sotheby’s Auction House in various capacities.

Lara is a native New Yorker and grew up with Israeli parents who instilled the belief that peace begins with dialogue and breeds an inherent understanding of one another. She is a firm believer that, through the programs provided by Seeds of Peace, this discourse has had an opportunity to uniquely emerge and flourish. Lara hopes to leverage her New York school alumni and community base to help expand and elevate the Seeds of Peace mission.

Lara speaks English, Hebrew, and French fluently.
