Laura Nyirinkindi is a human rights lawyer living in Uganda and working to support change management and organizational development processes for civil society organizations and government entities. She believes that processes of empowering groups and communities to articulate and shape their aspirations best succeed when expressed and implemented by the men and women in those spaces. She continues to be passionate about promoting social justice for vulnerable and disempowered communities particularly in Africa. Before joining the Root Change Board, Laura sat on the African Development Bank-Civil Society Committee where she represented the East African Region on issues of people centred development. She holds a Master’s degree from Oxford University in International Human Rights Law and is keen to promote human rights education in Africa. She feels at home in the creatives and has been known to produce musicals, pen poems and dabble in African fashion.
