Biography

Anuradha Mundkur has extensive international teaching and practical experience in the fields of gender and development. As the Associate Director of the Gender Consortium, her responsibilities include designing and facilitating capacity development programs on gender sensitive policy-making, implementation and evaluation as well as research on gender equity issues and good governance.

Her book titled Peace and Security: Implications for Women examines the implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions on 'Women, Peace and Security' in the Asia Pacific region. Her recently edited book Information Technology, Development and Social Change challenges the notions that innovations in information technology mean progress and advancement for developing communities.

Recognising her expertise in enabling women’s leadership and empowerment, Anu was nominated by the Minister for the Status of Women (Government of South Australia) to the South Australian Premier’s Council for Women (PCW) and she is also a member of the Women’s Education Advisory Group, which acts as an independent industry advisory committee for TAFE South Australia’s women’s education program. As a recognition of her work and knowledge of women’s empowerment Anu was elected to the Board of UN Women Australia (2008-2010).

More recently, Anu has been invited to be part of Executive Committee of Academics Stand Against Poverty (Oceania) an international association focused on helping researchers and teachers enhance their impact on poverty. She is also on the executive committee of the Women Peace and Security Civil Society Coalition a national coalition which monitors the implementation of Australia’s national plan on UN Security Council Resolutions on women, peace and security.
