International Center for Research on Women President Geeta Rao Gupta announced that she will be leaving the organization in April 2010 to join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as a senior fellow in its global development program. Rao Gupta has served as ICRW president for 13 of her 20 years with the organization.

“The time is right to pursue this new opportunity for me and for ICRW,” said Rao Gupta. “I am fully confident that ICRW’s strong leadership team, world class staff, quality work, global reputation and firm financial footing will continue to lead the world’s efforts to empower women and promote gender equality.”

ICRW’s board of directors is developing a transition plan to identify a new leader.
