Chieko Barry

Name: Chieko Barry

Yale Affiliation: 84 JD

Where you live: La Jolla, California

What you do: I live in sunny La Jolla, California, about 30 minutes north of downtown San Diego. I have spent most of my career doing development work (legal and transactional) in the emerging markets, with a particular interest in issues facing women and corporate governance in those markets. I have worked in private practice, World Bank-affiliated international organizations and currently do independent legal advisory work.

Your family: My husband John and 21-year old daughter, plus a rescue Shi-Tzu named Carly.  

Other Yale volunteer work: I have enjoyed participating in Yale alumni programs such as the Yale Day of Service. I am a member of the Yale Club of San Diego.

Something we might not know about you: I used to play alto saxophone in my school jazz band.

Favorite Yale memory: So many! But what stands out are the little things, such as going to Yorkside Pizza behind the law school as a first year law student with my First Year small group.

Which two Yale women would you ask to join you for lunch and why: Sonia Sotomayor ’79 JD and Indra Nooyi ’80 MPPM, to reflect on how their cultural roots affected and supported their incredible careers and life paths.
