How Gopika is building a better working world 

Gopika has spent time with EY’s Corporate Social Responsbility Program called EY Vantage.  The EY Vantage Program promotes social and economic growth in emerging markets. As a part of this program, Gopika spent 3 months in Nicaragua assisting entrepreneurs and working with them to identify and address their key business challenges.  She specifically worked with small dairy farmers who developed a Cooperative to pool their dairy supplies to be able to sell their products into global markets.  In this role, she aided in developing a previously non-existent inventory system for the farmers.
