“My definition of feminist leadership is anyone – irrespective of their gender – who is working to end social injustice with a very strong gender lens in what they do (…) we need to move away from propagating leadership values that are traditional and patriarchal and anyone can do that.”Anusha Bharadwaj, CEO of Voice4Girls
As Executive Director of Voice4Girls, Anusha is working towards taking VOICE Camps to marginalised adolescent girls across the country. Anusha has been a development sector professional since 2002 and her core expertise is in child education and health, adolescent health, gender, public health and rural development. She holds an MBA in Rural Management from Institute of Rural Management, Anand (IRMA) and an MA in Sociology from Annamalai University. Her commitment and leadership is demonstrated by her selection into the Asia Pacific Leadership Fellow (2013-14), East West Center, USA and Harvard-Dasra Social Impact Leadership Program (2014-15).
