We invite you to attend a #FBLive Masterclass with Ms. Shriya Sethi, Director, IIC to gain insights into the evolving social impact ecosystem in India. The session will spotlight IIC’s journey thus far in creating scalable solutions for critical development challenges and introduce you to the unique Fellowship program.
As Director, Shriya oversees all aspects of the Fellowship including project development, fundraising and project oversight in India. Over the last 3 years, Shriya has worked on a number of projects in health, gender and water conservation with both government and large development organizations. However, recently the focus of her work has been on “Technology for Social Good” with an emphasis on building the capacity of the Government of India to use technology and data for decision making. IIC’s current projects include designing an “Innovation Unit” for the National Health Authority, assisting Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to create an “AI for Health” framework, developing a “Women’s Entrepreneurship Portal” for NITI Aayog, and working with Gujarat Education Department on “Educational Reforms” among others.
