Lavanya Selvam Alli

About Me

I have 9+ years of communications, grant development, research and project management experience across United States, Latin America, and India. I have worked on projects addressing climate change adaptation, biodiversity conservation, forest/land management, and community resilience. My work for global multilateral organizations include UNESCO, IUCN and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. As the neurodivergent (OCD) mom of a neurodivergent daughter (High Functioning Autism), it was important for me to take a break from work for the last few years, to evaluate my own mental health and evaluate my daughter for Autism. My daughter is now going for ABA therapy that will help guide her, to achieve personal and academic success. I want to be a great role model for my daughter, and get back to doing what I am good at - advocating for a sustainable planet.

Ideal Workplace Values

I am looking forward to working for organizations/companies that are working on the critical issues of environmental conservation. I am open to joining organizations who already have established projects; organizations looking to grow their donor base and companies who are using innovative technologies to help build a more sustainable planet.
