Hi everyone, my name is Hendriati Trianita, but you can call me Nita. I joined EngageMedia in March 2013 as the Program and Operations Manager for Southeast Asia.
As EngageMedia’s newest staff member, I am responsible for regional program management, team development, partnership development, and human resources. My role is to monitor all Southeast Asia based projects and ensuring that all programs meet their respective milestones, deadlines, and goals.
Before joining EngageMedia, I was working with some National and International NGOs in Indonesia, doing advocacy, research, and management work. My 15 years of experience with NGOs like WALHI, INSIST, Plan International, and UN-OCHA, give me a rich understanding of the issues on gender, human rights, interfaith dialogue, the environment, and community empowerment.
My academic background in Studies in Communications and Media led me to work in some media projects, such as participatory video for children in disaster-affected areas, producing a video for an HIV/AIDS campaign, and another a series of videos on the Merapi Volcanic Disaster Risk Reduction campaign.
Joining EngageMedia gives me a chance to learn more about how we can help activists to “talk to the world” and provide more spaces for them to share ideas with wider communities. I’m glad to be part of an active and dynamic team and look forward to our time working together.
