It is with sadness that we inform you that Dr Trishima Mitra-Kahn, AWAVA’s committed Program Manager, has resigned. Trish has made the difficult decision to move on, seeking new challenges and opportunities in the preventing violence against women sector.

Trish joined AWAVA in March 2013 as Policy Officer and was appointed Program Manager in October 2013. Over the last year, she has been focused on amplifying member expertise so that AWAVA continues to deliver best-practice VAW policy advice and advocacy and has grown AWAVA’s international and domestic profile and reach. She has been integral in ensuring that AWAVA is recognised as a strong pathway between the specialist women’s services sector, governments, and policymakers.

The National WESNET Committee thank Trish for her management and hard work and wish her the best for her future. The Staff also thank her for her mentorship and leadership in establishing a highly effective team environment.

If you would like to get in touch with Trish, please contact the AWAVA Secretariat for forwarding details.
