Indian-born Gita Gopinath is breaking the trend as she became the first woman and the second Indian to feature on the 'wall of former chief economists' of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Gopinath, sharing the noteworthy achievement, tweeted, Breaking the trend I joined the wall of former Chief Economists of the IMF. With that, she shared photos of the wall, while posing in front of it and pointing at her picture. The wall consists of 11 portraits of former chief economists of IMF, hers being the 11th and the latest one. While this is a milestone event in history, Gopinath broke the trend and the glass ceiling right when she became the first woman ever to become an IMF chief economist. She was promoted to become the first deputy managing director at IMF in December last year. Gopinath has done her PhD in Economics from Princeton University in 2001. She has also taught at the prestigious IVY League educational institution, Harvard University. Her research has been published in various top economics journals. The first Indian to go up on that wall was Raghuram Rajan, who served as Chief Economist and Director of Research of IMFbetween2003 and 2006. However, the recognition of Gopinaths work stands as a testimony and inspiration to women shattering glass ceilings across industries.
