The GlamourGals Foundation Vice President, Kavita Mehra, Is A 2013 New Leaders Council Fellow


New Brunswick, NJ (January 16, 2013) - Kavita Mehra, Vice President of the GlamourGals Foundation, Inc., has been chosen to take part in the 2013 New Leaders Council (NLC) Institute in New Jersey. Kavita is one of 21 young professionals who are participating in the highly-selective NLC New Jersey fellowship, starting this month. Fellows are trained in topics like political strategy, networking, leadership and mentoring. Kavita is thrilled at the opportunity to participate in the NLC Institute. “I’m really excited to meet all of the highly-accomplished individuals that are part of the program, who are doing really good work in their communities and who are committed to fostering positive experiences for others,” she said. Kavita has 10 years of experience working for not-for-profits in the New York City area.

She has a Bachelor of Arts from New York University with a double major in history and gender studies and a Master of Arts from Columbia University, with a concentration in South Asian studies. Lou Valerio, an executive board member for GlamourGals, who also serves on the board of the NLC, has worked closely with Kavita for two years and is excited about her participation in the fellowship.

“As the current treasurer of the New Leaders Council, I know how many applicants were reviewed for this position. Kavita continues to lead as a tremendous role model to the many young women she works with,” Lou said.

The NLC Institute offers a five-month long program, where fellows meet one weekend a month to hear from guest speakers and attend workshops to hone their professional development. At the end of the five months, each fellow is matched with a mentor, which Kavita is especially excited about.

“The program is a vehicle in which I can build upon my skill settings and enhance my contribution to GlamourGals,” she said.

Kavita is always looking for ways to challenge herself and stay fresh and competitive and the NLC Institute is a wonderful opportunity for her to do so.
