In this episode, we talk with the incredibly inspiring Shailey Hingorani, Head of Advocacy, Research and Communications at AWARE (Association of Women for Action and Research, Singapore). In our conversation, Shailey shares her passion for advocacy research, gender equality, her feminist journey and how she found her public and impactful voice.
Here are some key takeaways for those who aspire to be a researcher and an advocate!
💡Research is the foundation of successful advocacy on any issue but particularly on women's rights and gender equality.
💡We as researchers have to be reflexive; consciously acknowledge and understand our own position, and involve the community in research
💡The point of our research is to create policy change by making our research as accessible as possible to the public and mobilizing people to action.
