IANGEL is pleased to introduce Kamardip Singh as our new Executive Director starting this January 2018. Kamardip joins IANGEL to continue a decade-long career focused on international women’s rights and social justice. From 2014 to 2018, Kamardip served on the Resourcing Women’s Rights team at the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID), honing her political analysis of global women’s rights and the sociopolitical contexts in which our social justice movements operate. Prior to her time at AWID, Kamardip was the Program Officer for Asia and the Pacific at Global Fund for Women, a grantmaker to groups and organizations defending the rights of women.
Kamardip has lived in many cities, from Washington, DC; Bamako, Mali; and Ahmedabad, India. She’s now settled in the Bay Area. In each city, she’s gotten involved with local women’s rights efforts, particularly groups working against gender-based violence.
