Media and Gender
She is a Global Shaper (and the current Vice Curator for the Ahmedabad hub) at the World Economic Forum and is an active part of the project MenTalk at her hub, which aims at Gender Sensitization. Under this project, the team hosts a Radio Show on Radio Nazariya to reach out to more people about the cause. Aditi has trained the first batch of facilitators for the show. The team also does workshops with young students and the ultimate objective is to create a curriculum on Gender. This is where combining the knowledge for various mediums of communication and the cause comes into picture.
Collaborations like radio for gender, social media for gender, creative handbooks for gender are all made possible. She records stories on gender for a portal called ‘The Kahani Project’ as well. Aditi is also one of the only 30 selected from across the country selected for a fellowship called ‘She creates change’. Her petition for this fellowship is to remove gender referencing from school curriculum.
Aditi is the co-founder of a venture called ‘Why Shy’ – as the name suggests, it aims at creating a safe space for dialogues about taboo topics. It looks at being a platform for platforms – aggregating the details about various organizations working for a similar cause.
