India has seen amazing development over the years says Candace Browning, who came to this country for the first time in 1984. Now the head of Global research, Bank of America Merrill lynch, she was back in India in october as part of a corporate social responsibility initiative begun by her bank.Each of the six participants in the programme, all women in senior positions, is mentoring on Indian woman in business related activity. “My mentee is trying to start a marketing project and the challenges she is facing are fascinating,” she says.Browning who loves India’s cuisine and its vibrant colours, also draws parallels between the experiences of her mentee, and women in south africa and Tahiti in the Pacific, where the first two phases of her bank’s project were held. “Women need to be clear both about the kind of people they hire, as well as the terms under which they  take up employment.” – Manasi Mithel
