The Fiji Women’s Rights Movement is pleased to announce the appointment of Nalini Singh, as their new executive director.

Ms Singh will step into the position formerly held by Tara Chetty, who left the organisation in August.

“We’re 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,” said FWRM Governance Board Chair Daiana Buresova.

The FWRM Governance Board made the final decision after an intense two month recruitment process.

“I’m looking forward to this wonderful opportunity to be part of the FWRM team. I’m thrilled to be returning home to continue working with and supporting the women’s movement in Fiji and beyond,” said Ms Singh.

Ms Singh has over the past 15 years, worked with civil society and non-government organisation partners in Fiji and the Asia Pacific. She is currently based in Malaysia, as Programme Manager for the Asian Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW).

Prior to this, she worked with the Pacific Regional Human Rights Education Resource Team (RRRT) before joining the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) in Thailand.

“We’re excited to see the type of leadership and ideas Nalini will bring and look forward to working with her,” said Ms Buresova.

Ms Singh will officially take up her new post in January, 2017.
