Pratibha "Patti" Tripathi
Founder, TriPath Media, & Saris to Suits;
First Woman of Indian Origin to anchor on Network News & Activist
Born in India and bred in Indiana I navigate between the worlds of Saris To Suits.
As a journalist, former network TV news anchor and a social entrepreneur, who is the daughter of a renowned physicist and US immigrants, I have witnessed, covered, and succeeded in a world of contradictions and disparities. I aspire to make an incremental difference for women and girls so they can earn and achieve their fullest potential.
“Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it,she stands up for all women.”
- Maya Angelou
Garments such as “saris” or “suits” do not make a person more or less empowered. Rather, our trademarked and registered brand implies these savvy and worldly women travel fluidly between continents, chasms, and communities AND serve as real-life role models for young girls and women. It has multiple meanings – East to West, woman to man, and the assimilation process reflected in attire occurs when women enter the workforce.
