About Amanpreet Ahluwalia

Aman is a writer, activist and artist with 16 years of experience in social justice and community leadership development work. 

Most recently, her work focuses on growing professional expertise, research and practice related to using lived experience of marginalisation as a force for ethical leadership and progressive social change. Aman often leads practice-based and practitioner-focused research, which go on to inform her own work, and that of the organisations and people that she works with. She also founded of Birthing Ourselves, a platform that produces opportunities and spaces for growth and reflection for leaders focused on social justice from an intersectional perspective.

Her early involvement in theatre and the dramatic arts informed her approach to work significantly; teaching her the importance of bodily experience, powerful storytelling and emotional reflection work in the teaching/learning process and she has grown to understand how important this approach is when the outcome of this work has a social justice or social change focus. She has since worked all over the world developing this core idea in many forms. Aman spent the first ten years of her career learning from and developing experimental approaches to leadership development with young people in community contexts all over the world; from Kenya, Canada, Latin America and the UK. Having experience of using a number of health and social care services, Aman is now committed to spending her professional life leading innovative, thoughtful and gentle services that consciously improve and adapt; working to enhance life-chances, rather than damage lives unintentionally.
