November Happy Hour and Guest Speaker

We are thrilled to be joined by our friends from the Kings College London alumni group as we welcome a distinguished guest speaker to our next happy hour: award-winning career strategist, advisor to Fortune 500 CEOs and DEI expert, Rita Kakati-Shah. Rita will lead a fireside chat and stay on for informal Q&A with attendees.


Rita Kakati-Shah is the Founder and CEO of Uma, an international strategy, coaching and training platform that empowers confidence. Prior to Uma, Rita led Business Development globally in CNS healthcare. Rita began her professional career at Goldman Sachs in London. She is also a Distinguished Alumna of King’s College London and a triple Stevie Awards for Women in Business winner, judge for the Middle East Awards, and recipient of several international awards in recognition of advancing gender equality, diversity and inclusion, and empowering women, girls, and youth around the world.
