Mar 1, 2023 | Blog, Latest News

Anjana Nathwani is a Global Business Psychologist. We spoke with Anjana about what connects her to our women-focussed work to end hunger sustainably and her plans for International Women’s Day. 

Anjana works with corporate clients on diversity and inclusion. Her work focuses on women’s leadership development, black and minority leaders and exploring roles at university such as business mentoring. She primarily focuses on how businesses can become successful through developing their workforce to believe in better and optimising their positive potential. 

She says “I decided to join Unleashed Women as I was at a point in my life when I wanted to explore different communities, to learn new challenges. The Unleashed Women Movement offered a sense of a maturity, alignment in values, most importantly I believe in the work of the Hunger Project. The forums had a purpose and they were so interesting and relevant. I like the experience everyone brings to the group, you can tell all of the members want to make a difference!” 

We asked Anjana what her plans for this year’s International Women’s Day to which she said she will be participating in the Womentoring programme and coaching three working women through the Cardiff University Alumni office. She would also like to prepare a presentation to celebrate 9 women who have made an impact on her life such as her mother and colleagues! 

“I am a two-time cancer survivor; I believe in the power of nutrition. I don’t think anyone should go to hungry in this day and age and I am fortunate to have the funds to have the nutrition. Being a cancer survivor has made me who I am today and I am happy with what I have achieved in my career. I have worked with great people who are now successful in their own arenas.” 

In the future, Anjana has ambitious plans and to start with, aims to do a digital inclusion project. “I want to include other leaders in this initiative, and I have given some tablets out to women who are in business who needed access to digital online networks. I want to create a database of a thousand leaders and try to influence digital inclusion and would like to partner with the Hunger Project on this.  

“As a legacy I want to influence women and enable them to succeed.” 

A huge Hunger Project thank you to Anjana for her support and partnership in the end of hunger. If you would like to speak to us about becoming part of the community to end hunger and poverty, please get in touch with our Country Director, Rebecca Burgess – rebecca.burgess@thehungerproject.org.uk
