Register for “Giving Back to India” this Saturday at the Kennedy Centre

March 16, 2011

I’ve been hearing a lot about the Kennedy Center’s ongoing maximum INDIA festival, and a friend just sent a link to the registration for this panel on giving back to India from Indian-Americans.  I’m curious why it seems like there are no women on the panel, but beyond that, it does look fascinating – and quite unique in bringing together high-level Indian-American donors in this way:

Giving Back to India: The Forms and Accomplishments of Indian-American Philanthropy

The Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Migration Policy Institute, and the Indian Council for Overseas Employment are hosting a panel discussion on the Indian diaspora’s role in philanthropy and giving. The event will be followed by a coffee reception hosted by the Kennedy Center.
