Radha Kulkarni is not afraid to take chances. Starting out at the globally renowned accounting giant KPMG’s assurance and advisory services, she moved on to strategy at Tata Consultancy Services, which prompted her interest in policy. She is now the resource mobilization manager, generation unlimited, at UNICEF, where she focuses on the needs of 1.8 billion young people worldwide. She has also worked for the UNDP and the Piramal Foundation and has been a teaching assistant at Columbia University, New York.
Radha received a master’s in public administration from Columbia University as well as an MBA from the Institute of Management Technology. Her career trajectory has been far from linear; she has worn many hats and dabbled in diverse projects. In 2016, she was part of the Chief Minister’s War Room Team, which focused on fast-tracking crucial projects for Maharashtra in departments such as infrastructure, financial services and technology, among others. When she is not immersed in finance, strategy and policy, Radha is an avid traveler with a keen interest in photography and food.
