Welcome Cohort Four! ECPAT International, Subha Nivedha
The Hilton Prize Coalition Fellows Program seeks to develop a robust pipeline of leaders who possess not only subject matter skills and expertise, but also the soft leadership skills needed to succeed in the workplace, and who understand and value the importance of collaboration for humanitarian and development organizations to increase effectiveness throughout the sector.
This year the Coalition ushers in the next cohort of Fellows. Subha Nivedha is one such Fellow joining Coalition member ECPAT International,
a global network of civil society organizations combating all forms of child sexual exploitation.
Read on to meet Subha and learn how she will plug into ECPAT International in order to grow as a future humanitarian leader over the course of her fellowship.
WHAT WILL YOUR ROLE BE AT ECPAT INTERNATIONAL?
As a legal intern, I support the Research and Policy projects with the legal aspect. I draft country overview reports and support other legal research and policy initiatives.
WHAT ABOUT ECPAT INTERNATIONAL’S MISSION APPEALS TO YOU?
The mission to end sexual violence against children. Their commitment to specifically address the issue at different levels with altered methods resonates with my expectation out of my professional career.
YOU ARE A PART OF THE NEXT GENERATION OF HUMANITARIAN LEADERS. HOW DO YOU PLAN TO LEAVE A MARK AT ECPAT INTERNATIONAL?
I intend to look at the legal framework focusing on the prevention of sexual violence against children and contribute with precise drafting to further the mission. I bring a diverse background to addressing the issue which I believe gives me a chance to look at things with a fresh perspective.
