Human rights activist Nalini Singh has been appointed the new Executive Director of the Fiji Women’s Rights Movement (FWRM).

She was formerly based in Malaysia, as Programme Manager for the Asian Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW).

Ms Singh takes over the position from 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,” Ms Singh said.

Over the past 15 years, Ms Singh has worked with civil society and non-government organisation partners in Fiji and the Asia Pacific.

Prior to this, Ms Singh 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 officially took up her new post on Monday.
