Short Bio : I believe in empowerment of women as a society can grow only when women grow! Being a ‘feminist’ to me means being gender equal where there is no criteria of gender before choices are made while providing opportunities. Apart from this I always am concerned about “what world we would want to leave for our future generations - be it values, beliefs, culture or environment. I strive to make small contributions to make this world a better place in my own way. In my current role as a global leader operations for 27 countries across central and Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Africa with Conservation International, I empower and influence cross-cultural teams to translate organizational effectiveness and operations excellence into actions by spearheading the development and implementation of a operations strategy that provides effective on-the-ground support. I have consistently demonstrated moving the organizational needle from ‘status quo’ to ‘building and driving high performing teams which has enabled the organization to maximize its social and environmental impact. Earlier in my career, I pivoted from for-profit and consulting organizations to multinational not-for-profit organizations, which not only brought me more personal fulfilment but also empowered me to better human well-being around the world. My exposure to a variety of cultures has allowed me to closely observe and understand them through their different values and beliefs. I intend to share these insights through my work, interactions, public speaking, and coaching. More broadly, one of my core values as a professional and a person is giving. This could be giving through my finances, my experience, my time or through my actions. I truly believe that I am blessed to be in a position to give. I bring this giving philosophy into action not just through an impact-driven organization but also by sharing my learning, wisdom and experience with individuals, leaders, and executives through coaching. My work keeps me on my toes, but I love decompressing with a glass of wine, a great book or long walks in nature.
