Marching Ahead: Talking Gender and Development in India

Women’s Day Conversation 02| Anand Kothari

To celebrate Women’s History Month during the month of March, we decided to ask some important questions around gender and development to reformers in the Indian social sector whose projects we have supported through our platform. After kicking off the series with gender researcher and activist Gauthami Penakalapati, we’re excited to move to a program lens.

For our second interview, we had the pleasure of chatting with Anand Kothari from Oxford Policy Management.

Anand works at Oxford Policy Management’s India office and is part of a team operating an embedded monitoring and evaluation cell within a large government project focussed on rural livelihoods in Jharkhand. Anand has extensive experience working on impact evaluations and program management in health, nutrition and livelihoods projects in Bihar and Jharkhand. His training is in development economics and he has degrees from the Universities of Manchester and Mumbai.
