Sheela Ahluwalia is the senior labor analyst at Transparentem, a nonprofit that works to expose environmental and human rights abuses in global supply chains.

In the department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, she advised senior U.S. and foreign officials on policies and programs; produced country assessments for the annual Trafficking in Persons Report; and exposed previously hidden forms of forced labor.
