Mani AroraMember, Board of Directors
Maninder Arora has over 25 years of experience as President and CEO of a distribution company. She was instrumental in exponential growth of the company directly overseeing all aspects of the business including accounting, purchasing, operations and HR. Prior to this, Maninder worked for 15 years as a medical technologist at Alta Bates Hospital.
Maninder has been working in development efforts with children and women in underserved communities and cultures since a very young age. Her mother was a gynecologist in North India who left a legacy of working with women in the community. Dr Pritam Kaur housed hundreds of rape, incest and domestic violence victims in her nursing home in attempts to get them re-settled, emotionally and financially. She was also dedicated to helping the girl-child with successful adoptions in families that could take care of them.
Working alongside her mother, Maninder developed an understanding of the challenges and a resolve to continue to help the cause. Since selling her business in 2015, Maninder has been working in support of non-profit organizations focusing on empowering women and children.
