Leader of Impact Award 2013: Empowering Global Agents of Change
On September 18, 2013 GWLN gathered with nearly 200 guests to salute Smarita Sengupta, the 2013 Leader of Impact Award (LOI) winner. A graduate of the GWLN 2010 leadership program, Smarita is the Founder and Director of Destiny Foundation. Her mission is to end sex trafficking and slavery in India and to reintegrate survivors back into mainstream society as financially independent women with respectable employment.
We thank the sponsors, donors and volunteers who joined with GWLN leaders, graduates and the LOI Award finalists to celebrate the impact of women leaders around the world. Our annual event also recognizes our entire graduate community who work in over 40 countries to create new opportunities for women and girls worldwide.
in addition to hearing Smarita share her story, her challenges and successes, guests also learned about GWLN's latest initiatives to increase our impact by empowering more women leaders as global agents of change. See photos and stay tuned for more!
