Program Lead (Training & Implementation)
Ankita has worked in the development sector for almost 10 years. She studied journalism in Delhi and did her first master’s in Communication for Development at St. Xavier’s, Mumbai. Her second master’s is in Human Rights from IIHR, Delhi. Ankita’s experience of working with unique communities, from sex workers in the red-light area in Mumbai, Maharashtra, to rural communities in the remote villages of Unnao, Lucknow, has been transformational. Her consulting experience with leading companies like Reliance, Adani, Mahindra, Bajaj, Axis Bank, Yes Bank, and the Government of Maharashtra, has helped her understand the end-to-end landscape and dynamics of the ever-evolving CSR in the country. Despite a gruelling day in the field, or perhaps because of, she comes back home every day to write about her experiences in her blog diary. Ankita is also an aspiring entrepreneur. She runs a small business Aai ki Kala that revisits her Aai’s(mother) passion for creating beautiful macrame products!
