Cherie Blair Foundation

From the Times of India:
The Cherie Blair Foundation For Women on Friday made its debut in India with a conference called Women Mean Business, which saw a rainbow coalition of women entrepreneurs, professionals and NGOs pledge their support to women empowerment.

Corporates such as Infosys will aid the foundation in identifying barriers that prevent Indian women from doing business.

"We're not calling for any gender to dominate the other. We're looking to create greater partnership,'' said Cherie Blair, wife of former UK prime minister Tony Blair. She was in Mumbai for the conference. Successful women, including HSBC India country head Naina Lal Kidwai, MD of ICICI bank Chanda Kochhar, former IPS officer Kiran Bedi and designer Ritu Kumar, attended the meet.
