Judith Olang

Communications Officer, CARTA

Judith supports the Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA) program by promoting engagement among stakeholders, providing information, and public communication about the work and impact of the program in research capacity strengthening across Africa.

Prior to joining APHRC, Judith was a Communications Officer for African Women in Agricultural Research and Development, a career development program supporting African women agricultural scientists to strengthen their research capacity. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism, and a Master’s degree in Organizational Development, both from the United States International University–Africa.

Judith is driven by the need for excellence and professionalism in her work, and ensuring she makes a contribution to the continent’s development; she believes that development communication and policy engagement have a major role to play in ensuring research is understood by those who need it the most; communities and policy makers, and that it leads to transformation.

Judith enjoys reading blogs and taking long road trips with friends as the perfect way to explore Kenya.
