Rose Otieno Ochieng

Gender Specialist

As Root Capital’s Gender Specialist, I support the global efforts of our Women in Agriculture Initiative as we build gender inclusion and equity alongside rural women across the world. I grew up in a small farming town in Nakuru County before pursuing a Masters in Anthropology at the University of Nairobi. Since then, I’ve spent more than a decade working in gender equity, agriculture, monitoring and evaluation, and climate change in international consulting firms. Root Capital attracted me with its track record of impact in the communities where it works. I’m grateful for the opportunity to bring my own experience to build on that impact. Outside of the office, you can find me cycling or practicing my interior decorating skills.
