THE new executive director of the Fiji Women’s Rights Movement, Nalini Singh, will officially begin her role next January.
FWRM governance board chair Daiana Buresova said Ms Singh would take up the position formerly held by Tara Chetty.
“We are confident in Nalini’s selection given her experience in working on human rights of women and advocacy with an intersectional lens, understanding the complex layered situations and circumstances that impact women,” Ms Buresova said.
“The FWRM governance board made the final decision after an intense two-month recruitment process. We are excited to see the type of leadership and ideas Nalini will bring and look forward to working with her.”
Ms Singh said taking the lead role in an advocacy organisation for women was an achievement.
“I am looking forward to this wonderful opportunity to be part of the FWRM team. I am thrilled to be returning home to work with and support the women’s movement in Fiji and beyond,” she said.
Ms Singh is currently the program manager for the Asian Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW) in Malaysia.
