Sulata Dhakal is the Director of Program at Smart Cheli, a non-profit social enterprise that aims to balance the gender gap in STEM fields through mentorship and STEM-based workshops. The organization not only strives to encourage young girls to pursue STEM careers but also introduces virtues that help them develop problem-solving and collaborative skills in order to make them global citizens.
Sulata holds a Master’s degree in Structural Engineering and is also an Erasmus+ Scholar. Her passion has led her to become a mentor at the 1000 Girls 1000 Future program by the New York Academy of Sciences as well as a One Young World Ambassador where she uses her voice to make STEM more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
“As a visionary leader, I envision a world where young girls are supported to pursue their passions, break barriers, and become the architects of their dreams.”
