The Women for Economic and Leadership Development (WELD) recognized global business attorney Vinita Bahri-Mehra as 2013 “Twelve Women You Should Know™.”

Each year, WELD honors a distinct group of women in the central Ohio community who exhibit leadership within their organizations, support the leadership development of other women, volunteer their time to the community, and invest in the growth of women-owned businesses.

She is dually licensed to practice law in both Ohio and India.
