The Center for WorkLife Law is pleased to welcome Peri Ouyang as a summer Legal Fellow. Peri will assist with legal research and work on the Center’s ongoing projects to advance protections for pregnant, parenting, and breastfeeding workers and students, and to prevent family responsibility discrimination.
Before joining WorkLife Law, Peri graduated from UC Santa Barbara where she majored in Anthropology and Feminist Studies. Following her degree, she then worked in the field of worker’s compensation. This experience inspired her to attend law school in order to increase worker’s rights regarding labor and employment issues. She is interested in the intersections of race, class, and gender and how they are affected by public policy.
“I am so excited to join and learn from the WorkLife Law team this summer to address some of the ongoing employment issues such as Family Responsibilities Discrimination and the Pregnant Scholar Initiative,” said Peri.
Peri is currently a law student at Washington University in St. Louis focusing on public interest. Outside of work, Peri loves hiking, live music, and trying new foods and restaurants.
