Nikita Jha

Programme Associate


It was while pursuing her Master’s in Gender Studies that Nikita was taken up with her course on Men and Masculinity. She decided to make it her long term goal to work with men and boys and as luck would have it, she got an opportunity to work with Equal Community Foundation immediately after college.

“If you exclude 50% of the population, you will never achieve where you want to reach”, says Nikita. While she had heard this said mostly about programmes with women, she applies it to men as she believes we cannot move towards gender equality without engaging men and boys.
Nikita believes in pulling out all the stops in life and enjoys singing, dancing, drama and identifies as a fitness fanatic.
