Joining her on the panel were: Daryl Harrison Rand, Founder of Friends of India and President and CEO of Harrison Rand Advertising, and Linda Bowden, New Jersey Regional President, PNC Bank.

The guests talked about their experiences on the excursion including the valuable networking connections they made amongst each and with businesswomen in India. They expressed their desire to help make a difference by playing a role in the lives of young women from India who would not otherwise have opportunities due to the poverty in their nation.
Other issues they discussed included: women’s empowerment, the importance of education, creating jobs, global citizenship, and the exploration of short term educational immersion experiences in India for American students.
