ADVISORY BOARD

Onike Shorunkeh-Sawyerr – Pride Equality Board Chairperson

OnikeOnike Shorunkeh-Sawyerr is a dynamic and enthusiastic German student currently undergoing a Magister degree (MSc equivalent) in cultural anthropology, sociology and political science at the Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz. In the course of her studies she has largely focused on questions of development and international relations. Her main regional focuses are Africa, particularly West Africa and South Asia. The combination of her subjects encouraged and strengthened her interest in international politics and due to the wide range of her studies and her diverse work experiences she can easily adapt to new topics and themes. Gender relations and women’s rights have always been of particular interest to her. In several seminars and assignments, workshops and conferences she has intensely dealt with these subject matters. Not only has she experience in implementing Corporate Social Responsibility projects (Assam, Northeast India) but has also worked with organizations such as the Heinrich-Boell Foundation. During her research project on return migration in Freetown she has come across activists from Pride Equality and has witnessed the enthusiasm and firm conviction with which the staff approaches their work. She completely supports the vision and mission of advocating for and defending the rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community in Sierra Leone and worldwide. She is currently based in Mainz, Germany and is thrilled to help establish links between the LGBTI movement in Germany and Pride Equality. She provides Pride Equality with technical assistance and support them in their resource mobilization and networking activities as well as research and documentation.
