Working towards this vision, the organization facilitates women’s leadership development through research, mobilization, recruitment, training, coaching, mentorship, lobbying and advocacy, as well as through enabling a socio-economic and political leadership support system.

Individual Member: Anshika Suri

Anshika Suri

Anshika is from India and currently resides in Germany. She is an architect and urban development practitioner, holding Master’s degrees in International Cooperation in Urban Development and Sustainable Emergency Architecture. Her thesis focused on the link between growing gender – based violence and the public transportation system in New Delhi. Independently, Anshika has also researched existing policies that tackle violence against women and survey female public transport users, as well as practitioners, in order to highlight a lack of gender awareness in the fields of architecture and planning. She has also worked on issues related to housing rights and land management and engaged in a World Bank project reviewing the current affordable housing policies and possible alternative methods of land management in Mongolia. In the future, Anshika hopes to apply for a PhD degree related to gender issues in sanitation infrastructure, focusing on urban centers in the Global South. And she is looking forward to connect to other AWID members who may be researchers and are working in similar fields.
