Leadership Moves with Mallika Dutt

Dec 1, 2020

After our last episode with Srilatha Batliwala we felt like we were not even close to done with our exploration of power in the workplace, and wanted to dive deeper into understanding and transforming repressive power dynamics within our organizations. In this episode Srilatha builds on the themes in our last episode, helps us identify complex hierarchical structures, and gives us the tools to begin dismantling them.

Srilatha’s work has spanned grassroots activism, building movements of marginalized women, policy advocacy, and capacity building of young activists around the world.

She currently serves as Senior Advisor, Knowledge Building with CREA, (Creating Resources for Empowerment in Action), a global organization based in New Delhi, India, that works at the intersection of gender, sexuality and human rights.



This series is supported by the BUILD program of the Ford Foundation.
