Research and Evaluation Consultant

Waseem Meghjee

I’m a Junior Research and Evaluation Consultant in the Consultancy Team. I work on several different projects, supporting learning partnerships, research projects and evaluations with data collection and analysis, as well as writing up reports.

My experience and skills

I have Bachelors of Arts in Development Studies and Geography from the Schools of Oriental and African Studies, and a Masters of Science in Global Population Health from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Through my studies, I have developed a deep interest in health inequalities, gender, demography, livelihoods and racial inequalities. I am particularly interested in sexual reproductive health, ending violence against women and girls, and culturally appropriate health services.

Before joining Renaisi, I worked with Comic Relief as an Investment Coordinator for the Government Partnerships Team and Save the Children as a Humanitarian Information and Communications Trainee, where I was deployed to the emergency response in North East Nigeria. I also worked as an intern for different non-governmental organisations in Tanzania, which is where I grew up.

My interests

A big interest of mine is anti-racism and diversity and inclusion in third sector decision making spaces. I am currently part of the advisory board for an organisation called GirlDreamer, which is an empowerment platform for millennial and gen z women of colour. Aside from that I love reading, music and being outside. So my ideal day would involve a good book, a few vinyl records and some fresh air.
