Rainbow WilcoxRainbow Wilcox is the Impact, Learning, and Communications Manager at Africa's Voices Foundation, an applied research organisation that spun out of Cambridge's Centre of Governance and Human Rights (CGHR). 

Africa's Voices Foundation combines digital technologies and multidisciplinary research methods to gather, analyse, and amplify the beliefs and practices of people living in African countries. Its approach is strengthened by growing research collaborations within and beyond the University of Cambridge. While Africa's Voices Foundation benefits from incorporating cutting-edge techniques into its projects, its collaborators are able to apply their ideas to real-world research in challenging contexts

The insights generated by Africa's Voices Foundation informs development and governance actors and help to orient their programmes towards the perspectives of those they are serving, which has the potential to positively impact the lives of the world’s poorest 3 billion people.

With a background in Psychology and International Development, Rainbow's motivation for joining the Global Challenges Forum is to leverage cross-disciplinary expertise to effectively guide efforts towards the Sustainable Development Goals. 

The Global Challenges Initiative is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to enhance the contribution of its research towards addressing global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
