Per my last blog post, I mentioned that I would be meeting with women’s organizations during our trip to Mumbai and New Delhi, so I thought I would update you on the amazing women that I have encountered during my travels.

My first meeting took place in Mumbai on Sunday, November 7th with members of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), Ladies Organization (FLO), the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), and the Gateway House to discuss their respective organization’s efforts to empower and improve the lives of women. The meeting brought together key local actors in India’s business and research sectors who focus on women’s empowerment issues.
