Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage

Emma Sadd is a communications and knowledge management professional with a decade of experience working with civil society organisations focused on human rights. Through her research and work in Bolivia, Colombia and Somalia, she became passionate about gender equality, youth engagement and Indigenous rights, and the intersecting factors that create discrimination and privilege.

She works with Girls Not Brides and their partners to raise awareness of child marriage and what works to address it around the world. She helps to ensure that learning resources are available and useful to diverse audiences, facilitating open discussion and learning between individuals and organisations, and promoting evidence-based collective action. She led the creation of the Girls Not Brides guidelines for ethical communications around child marriage, which aim to promote responsible, contributor-led storytelling around this vital issue.
