Dharma Life Labs – a collaboration between Dharma Life, the Wheeler Institute for Business and Development, and Siriti – has launched the JAYA Alliance to tackle the effects of COVID-19 on women. Leveraging a network of female entrepreneurs, academic capabilities, and digital technology to create pathways for women to upskill and gain economic independence.
