Lee has been actively working on the rights of issues in the development sector since 2006. She is a Disaster Response & Disaster Risk Reduction practitioner, working for inclusive policy frameworks and response by Government and Humanitarian agencies. She has anchored key initiatives and processes that have resulted in greater recognition of caste-based exclusion in public policy and humanitarian programmes; inclusive terminologies; and tools for needs assessments in disasters. This has enhanced visibility and collaborations on the issue with the stakeholders, such as Sphere India, UN and the ECHO.
Lee is also the main author for the study ‘Equality in Aid’, which remains a vital document towards addressing identity-based inequalities in DRR. Presently, she is anchoring the National Dalit Watch, the humanitarian unit of NCDHR and leads the Protection and Advocacy Committees of Sphere India for NCDHR.
