Our Team for United Arab Emirates
Meet Jui Joshi our National Lead for UAE!
What is your background?
Started my career as an I.T engineer and soon moved to the social development sector. I have worked with NGOs in sustainability and as an education consultant for over 4 years. I then turned my focus completely to sustainability, and worked as a consultant for 2 years, measuring and reporting impact for corporates, public utilities and non-profits – across their supply chain and CSR programs. Currently I manage ClimateLaunchpad, India with the Climate Collective. I focus on research and developing modules on impact assessments for green start-ups. I am also leading ‘Climate Ready for Women’, a women entrepreneurship program in India and hope to work with and support many women in green impact businesses across South Asia as well
I am an I.T engineer from Pune University and MSc. In Climate Change and Sustainability studies from Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).
