About Me:
Dr. Ash Pachauri, the founder and director of the Centre for Human Progress (CHP) is a behavioural scientist and knowledge mobilisation expert. Dr. Pachauri has contributed extensively to developing knowledge-based mobilisation processes in India to strengthen leadership and empowerment of in- and out-of-school youth and communities at-risk of HIV. A strong advocate for public health and human rights issues, Dr. Pachauri has spearheaded processes to build the first national platform for community-led knowledge sharing in India and is now expanding the platform for mobilisation and empowerment of youth and communities within the Asia and the Pacific region.

With a PhD in decision behaviour and master's degree in international management, Dr. Pachauri worked with McKinsey & Company before pursuing a career in the social development arena. Dr. Pachauri’s experience in the field of public health, including sexual and reproductive health and rights and HIV prevention among youth and at-risk communities emerges from a range of initiatives including those of PATH, UNDP, IPPF, Avahan (the India AIDS initiative of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) and CDC-funded interventions in the US. Dr. Pachauri has been engaged with research, implementation and capacity building of communities in social mobilisation, knowledge exchange and behaviour change communication. With a passion for internet technologies, Dr. Pachauri also developed the first electronic platform to support programmatic- and community-based knowledge exchange among Avahan-funded projects located in the six HIV high prevalence states of India.

Widely published, winner of the prestigious Overseas Research Scholarship, awarded for advanced studies in the U.K. and recognised for his academic achievements, Dr. Pachauri pursues interests in research and teaching through ongoing collaboration with academic institutions in India and the USA.

Ash, was panel judge for Laxmi Transgender Beauty contest and there were some of the most thrilling dances I have ever seen.Of special interest were the Marathi transgender Tamasha players who won the all Maharashtra level dance competititions and wow were they glamour and glitter.
