I have developed this group to create a Community of INDIAN professional business women who have earned degrees/advanced degrees in all academic disciplines. This local Bay Area organization is dedicated to advance the leadership, professional success of women by developing and cultivating a network that stimulates business opportunities, encourages professional development, and provides continuing business education for its members.
What I have observed over time here in USA, the ratio of men to women in Silicon Valley is 2:1 , it is hard to find PROFESSIONAL, FUN, SOCIAL and ACTIVE girls your age with common interests and similar background. Also, we all deserve a break from our hectic careers and family schedules. This group is for all the Indian ladies in Silicon Valley to make new friends and share your interests ~ that may result in life long friendship :)
I am hoping members who join the group will always aim to improve their professional and personal aspects of their life, inspire others to be successful, support each other and share positivity. Lets GROW and let others GROW too! CHEERS 2 WOMEN POWER!!
What we’ll do:
PROFESSIONAL & PERSONAL SUCCESS/GROWTH FRONT: SHARE & SEEK PANELS & FORUMS (professional and personal gaps discussions with solution options discussions and our experiences)
FUN-SIDE: Movies, Restaurants, bowling, hiking, Indian & American Festival Theme based potlucks, Girl Niteouts (Games, Movies), local events, wine-tasting etc
*** Target demographic is mid-twenties to mid-forties, but women of all ages are welcome.

Due to some Privacy & Security reasons, random event invites are not allowed by new members as we wanted to make sure we are familiar with whomever we are hanging out with. Folks are not allowed to post other group's events here, if anyone wants to posts any event they need to consult me first and I should know the person very well and trusted before I go ahead and post an event on their behalf. Will remove the members from the group incase this situation happens. Since this is GALs only group, Im very strict about this!
