This day is a part of a multi-stakeholder study Arthan is working on in collaboration with the Rockefeller Foundation to chronicle the journeys of women leaders in the development sector to serve as a guide to understanding the challenges and opportunities pertaining to WLIDS. These can help set industry benchmarks and help organisations, donors and policy makers to plan the gender pathways within organisations to emerge as a gender transformative workplace and help the women in the development sector, to negotiate for equality in roles and power.
