Yamini Sarangi MPP '23
Audience Restricted to SPIA graduate students, faculty and fellows

For the past 14 years, Yamini has worked for the Indian Administrative Service, the premier civil service of India. She will present on what it’s like to administer elections in the world’s most populous democracy; her experiences in implementing development programs in remote tribal districts; how the government responds to natural disasters like cyclones; and a state government’s response to COVID-19. She will highlight success stories and lessons learned.

MPP Forum is a weekly event normally scheduled on Fridays during the academic year. It allows each MPP candidate to showcase their career journey and expertise on policy issue of their choice with the SPIA community. This formal presentation is about 50 minutes followed by 20-minute Q &A. 

The MPP Forum is supported by a bequest from mid-career alumnus Christopher Meyer (MCF '83-'84) who was an authority on copyright law in private practice, academia and government.

*Registration required.
