Senior Communications and Marketing Manager 


I joined Forum in August 2021 as Digital Manager. Prior to Forum, I spent many years working at the intersection of sustainable development and strategic communications. As part of Intellecap, a development sector research and consulting firm, I worked on building and executing communication strategies for a range of development programs focusing on climate action, agriculture, gender and financial inclusivity in South and South East Asia, East Africa and Europe. I also worked on digital marketing for Sankalp Forum, one of the world's leading networking and learning events for impact investors and social entrepreneurs. Fresh out of college, I spent two years working as one of AIESEC's national exchange program directors in India and the United States.

Dream project

I deeply believe in the power of simple, yet impactful communication. My dream project would be to simplify the world's most complex and pressing development challenges and present it in a remarkable manner to the masses. Sustainable development and future of planet is not a narrative that is reserved for a chosen few. It is something that urgently needs to be mainstreamed and I would love to play a part in that movement.

What floats my boat outside work

I like to spend hours doodling and designing while listening to my favorite podcasts. I'm a big fan of all things non-fiction, so I indulge in documentaries, biographies and history books. Since I am based in India, exploring the diversity of the land by means of traveling is always fun for me. I also like cooking Indian and Italian food and baking citrus desserts.
