Earlier this month, Esmé and Ashri presented the findings of their research to their peers and to members of the Cordeiro family.
Ashri’s economics thesis entitled “Empower to Eliminate: A Randomized Evaluation of a Sexual Violence Prevention Program in Kisumu, Kenya” was nominated by Dr. Kiran Gajwani. Esmé’s anthropology thesis entitled “The Sons of All Australia: Masculinities, Mental Health, and the ‘Aussie Bloke’” was nominated by Professor Arthur Kleinman.
Congratulations Ashri and Esmé!
