Aarti Gor

Programme Manager

Aarti Gor is dedicated to working for marginalised communities, bringing over eight years of experience in protecting and supporting them and strengthening local community-based organisations. She holds a Master of Arts in Socio-Cultural Anthropology from Durham University, England (2014), and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Mumbai University, India (2012).

In October 2023, Aarti joined the Global Diversity Foundation team as Programme Manager, contributing her programme management, research, and capacity-building expertise. Aarti specialises in implementing programmes addressing critical rights-based issues, particularly in the areas of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and Gender-Based Violence (GBV) across on-ground and online spaces. She played a pivotal role in creating India’s first web portal for reporting Child Sexual Exploitation Material and in implementing the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation law in India—both projects close to her heart. Aarti also co-led the curation of the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) On the Ground Series, a platform for frontline workers to share their best practices, challenges, and experiences to further advocacy. Additionally, she implemented the EpiC Capacity Development Project in India to strengthen the organisational structure of community-based organisations. Throughout her career, she has collaborated with organisations such as UNICEF, USAID, British Asia Trust, Google, Johnson & Johnson, and government ministries.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Aarti enjoys exploring offbeat destinations, immersing herself in diverse cultures, savouring various cuisines, and expressing her creativity through amateur painting. She is currently trying to learn Dutch and navigating through Europe.
