These unlikely leaders are supported by Odisha’s 100, a network of hundred extraordinary and driven women. Looking for inspiration, contact and impact, Odisha’s 100 are jointly investing in a clear objective: to end hunger in Odisha, India. We want to both empower female leaders in India and together change the world. Are you in?
