Naura Nabila Haryanto is an early-professional development practitioner, young advocate, and facilitator passionate about issues of equal and inclusive access to education, gender justice, and meaningful youth participation. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations, she continued to empower young people to tackle harmful gender norms in Rutgers Indonesia by leading a gender-mainstreamed education program for high schoolers in 7 Indonesian provinces. Naura believes that young people should be meaningfully and inclusively involved in planning, implementing, and evaluating. As a young advocate, she used her first-hand experiences to develop a national module of gender-mainstreamed education for in and out-of-school and special-needs students with the Ministry of Education & Culture and Ministry of Health. Recognizing the need to expand the network among legislative policy-makers, she is now involved in the advocacy work of the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) Indonesia Office. She coordinates with the Committee of Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation under House of Representative of Indonesia to support Indonesia’s diplomatic parliaments in maximizing Indonesia’s parliamentary diplomatic effort in advocating for humanitarian crisis response in Myanmar. Her work earned recognition from UNESCO as the Young Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights (SRHR) Advocates Team to reflect on the comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) Global Status Report. She was also granted with ARROW-RHRN Changemakers Seed, where she initiated a 2-months peer-mentorship program to train 11 sex education teachers as mentors to utilize digital platforms in responding to traditional learning disruption. Lastly, she also shared her policy initiative towards gender-mainstreamed education in Indonesia’s national curricula as the Favourite Finalist for Future Leaders Connect by British Council.
