Ms. Ramdas is an inspirational and mindful leader, an advocate for human rights, open and civil societies, and a respected advisor and commentator
on issues of social entrepreneurship, development, women's leadership,
education, health, and philanthropy. Ramdas has spent her professional life shaping a world where gender equality can help ensure human rights and dignity for all.
She currently senior advisor to the Global Fund for Women, as well as visiting practitioner at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, visiting fellow at the Center for Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law in the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, and visiting practitioner at Stanford's Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society.
