Civil Society’s Current State of Affairs: Crisis or Opportunity? Ingrid Srinath is the Secretary General of CIVICUS, an influential global membership based network of civil society organizations. CIVICUS is dedicated to strengthening civil society throughout the world. Prior to joining CIVICUS Ingrid served as Chief Executive of India’s leading child rights advocacy organisation , Child Rights and You (CRY). At CRY, she led a team of over 200 employees in 7 offices based in India and overseas through a process of organizational transformation from a charity orientation to a rights-based approach.

Ms. Srinath also was a Senior Fellow of the Synergos Institute, a US based network for non-profit leaders and global philanthropists. Prior to that, she worked in the private sector, chiefly in marketing and advertising. We are honored to welcome Ingrid Srinath as the Fall 2009 Moynihan NGO Fellow.
