The chair of the organisation's board, Daiana Buresova, says Tara Chetty has played a pivotal role in further profiling women and their cause at a regional and international level.

Ms Buresova says Ms Chetty skills saw her secure critical international funding for the movement through to 2019.

Ms Chetty started as a board member in 2002 before joining the staff in 2005 as communications officer.

She then moved into management in 2012 as programme director and finally executive director last year.

Tara Chetty is taking up a role at a regional organisation promoting gender equality.
