Catalyzing Social and Economic Empowerment for Women

In honor of International Women’s Day, the American India Foundation (AIF) is thrilled to bring together a panel of three prominent philanthropic leaders. Join us on Thursday, March 7, 2024, as they share insights on their efforts, achievements, and challenges in empowering women across the globe. This roundtable discussion will feature the voices of Maya Patel, CEO of Tarsadia Foundation; Pia Desai, Executive Director, Samvid Ventures and Director, DS Advisors; and Rohini Nilekani, Chairperson of Rohini Nilekani Philanthropies and Co-Founder and Director, EkStep. Through sharing their work to catalyze social and economic progress for women, we seek to inspire a future where every woman is recognized, celebrated, and given the platform to thrive.

Moderated by Nishant Pandey, CEO of AIF, the discussion will explore various themes crucial to advancing the goal of women’s economic and social empowerment. From government policy, corporate strategy, civil society interventions, and philanthropic investment trends, each aspect plays a dynamic role in not only establishing frameworks for empowering women and girls, but also, driving the implementation of these initiatives for success. The discussion will delve into the varied philanthropic efforts aimed at fostering opportunities for women across education, public health, and livelihoods–along with the challenges, lessons learned, and strategy shifts required to drive sustained impact for women and girls across the most vulnerable strata of society.
