With nearly 25 years dedicated to the field of disability, I bring a wealth of expertise and a Master's Degree in English from the University of Bombay. Furthering my credentials, I have completed a postgraduate course in Human Rights and obtained a Novell Certified Internet Professional (NCIP) qualification. My passion lies in making the world truly accessible and inclusive for all.
Advocating for Change
My work has spanned access audits, inclusive design implementation, disability diversity/equality/rights training, and insightful research into disability issues. My dedication was recognized by the Centre for Disability Studies, NALSAR, who nominated me to the Supreme Court Committee on Accessibility established by Chief Justice of India, Dr. D Y Chandrachud. As a State Icon for Disability for the Maharashtra Election Commission, I actively promote equal participation and representation within our electoral system.
Sharing Expertise, Shaping Solutions
I offer my expertise in areas like the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act (RPDA 2016), the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), accessibility audits, and universal design for research, public speaking, and consultancy projects. For each project, I tailor my approach, working either independently or partnering with a team of fellow disability experts to deliver insightful solutions.
Building a Collaborative Future
I believe in the power of collaboration to achieve lasting change. My dynamic network, coupled with a commitment to working alongside dedicated partners, ensures that every project benefits from a wealth of experience and diverse perspectives.
