Heena holds an engineering degree in Information Technology from Punjab University. She has worked with ZS Associates as a senior technology analyst. Around 2015, Heena decided to change her career path and get involved in the development sector. She joined the Ashoka Young India Fellowship programme in 2016 before joining ECF. Having seen systemic gender-based discrimination around her and wanting to do something about it is what brought her to ECF. In her role, Heena contributes to building a programme that will scale the approach of raising gender equitable boys across India. Reading and long walks give her energy. She is an introvert but you would always hear speak up for what’s right.
