Founded in 2000, CREA is a feminist human rights organization based in New Delhi, India.

What does life in CREA Mean?

We like to think of ourselves as a fearless, interrogative, colourful, edgy, sexy flock of birds flying freely to explore, to imagine and to build freedoms together. If you are ready to challenge the system when needed, you could be one of us. If you ask questions, are curious, and have a hunger for learning, you will thrive at CREA. Constant learning, sharing of knowledge, is an expectation that team members have from CREA, and CREA from its team members. It demands our people to be connected, innovative, agile and quick to change.

If you embrace the colors of the rainbow and wish to build a world where an individual must have the agency and right to make choices about sexuality, reproduction and human rights, then you will find the room to explore here. Constant learning, sharing of knowledge is an expectation that team members have from CREA, and CREA from team members. At CREA we are constantly looking at finding those pressure points where efforts will yield maximum impact through a widening ripple effect. We are therefore constantly looking at patterns, intersectionality, and the communities at the margins. It demands our people to be connected, innovative, agile, and be quick to change and constantly learn and share.When you walk into CREA, you need to be prepared for a workplace that is of high quality, is creative, edgy, and dynamic.
