Powerhouse at the Pierre

Apr/07/2024 / by Team Seema

South Asian women celebrating women’s history month

Seema Kumar, creator of SEEMA, was one of many inspiring women who gathered this past month at the Pierre Hotel in New York City. Hosted by cultural educator, Anu Sehgal, the founder and president of The Culture Tree, attendees including Priya Krishna, Food Reporter for the New York Times and Deputy Mayor Meera Joshi joined together to celebrate women’s history month and inspire inclusivity among South Asian women. 

Entrepreneurs Rekha Rao, CEO of hello Products—a natural oral care brand—Megha Rao, founder and designer of holiCHIC by Megha, and Kanika Chadda Gupta, journalist and host of “That’s Total Mom Sense” Podcast, joined women leaders like Kavita Mehra, executive director of Sakhi for South Asian Women, to celebrate, network, support and give back. 

The power and passion in the room was palpable. Packed with women supporting women in causes like Sakhi, where they honor all survivors of violence, and focuses like promoting South Asian culture through educational and enrichment programs like those nourished at the Culture Tree. Kicking off the spring season in style, we can’t wait to see what these remarkable women are up to next.
