Aswathy Sivadasan Nair

Indian

An economist by education and a career bureaucrat by training and profession, my 17 years of leadership experience in the Indian Administrative Service have helped me gain considerable expertise in public administration and governance, especially in the fields of public health, nutrition, gender, children's rights and rural development. As a member of the faculty and a master trainer at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (the premier apex training institution of the Government of India), I focus on adult learning pedagogy and improving content for our numerous training and capacity-building programmes. While heading the National Gender Centre, I worked with a wide spectrum of stakeholders including non-governmental actors to drive policy formulation in tune with global best practices in the field of gender inclusivity.
