WAM NY has partnered with SUNY to host its Global Scholars program! We are also very proud to share that our Chair Praveen Prasad was chosen to mentor the 18 scholars who are part of the 2014 program. Praveen has an extensive background in international economic development, women’s leadership, public policy and financial inclusion. She has worked in over 17 countries in Africa and currently chairs WAM NY. WAM NY is delighted to be engaged in supporting and empowering the aspirations and ambitions of women, which is the mission of WAM NY. Our mission is to elevate women of all ages to be leaders in their organizations and communities. To this end, Praveen will be bringing her diverse experiences in leadership and strategy to help create a strong foundation for her mentees in their future careers and leadership opportunities.
