Emily Hau

Director of Programs and Partnerships, YINS

Emily is the Director of Programs and Partnerships at YINS. She has worked at Yale since 2008. Emily received her BA in geography from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2006, before studying international business law at the American University of Paris. Upon her return to the United States, she was recruited for a postgraduate fellowship in developmental social neuroscience at the Yale University School of Medicine. She co-founded the Give Speech Foundation, a nonprofit with a simple mission: to make augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) technology better, cheaper, and more accessible. Emily firmly believes smiles are contagious (she’s right) and that Yale University is the happiest place on earth. She is wife to William, and mother to beloved six-year-old Lulah (who recently faked the chicken pox with a red marker in an attempt to get out of going to camp). She spends every free moment successfully avoiding cooking.
