Mahek has over 10 years of exposure to the social work sector through her education, research and professional assignments. She began her career with Ministry of Rural Development and from there on she went to work with state government bodies, not for profits and corporates. At most of the places, her work profile included monitoring and evaluation of the projects and schemes. That’s when she started studying various models which management studies have already developed and have been practicing for measuring the effectiveness of the projects; for her Ph.D she used one such model and tried to see its applicability in one of the welfare programmes run by the Central Social Welfare Board.
 
With a Ph.D. in Social Work coupled with post-graduation in this domain, she has used her knowledge and a decade of work experience for creating significant and lasting impact through her projects. She has been involved in multiple social work initiatives in the areas close to her heart like women empowerment, social entrepreneurship, health and sanitation and child education.
 
About a year back she turned an entrepreneur and started her own not for profit organization called Lipi foundation.
