Biswal succeeds another Indian American, Mukesh Aghi, who left the organization following disagreements with the US Chamber of Commerce. The USIBC, an advocacy group that promotes business and commercial ties between the US and India, has presence in both the countries. Furthermore in her roles in the non-government sector, Biswal worked as Director of Public Policy at Inter Action, and as an international delegate for the American Red Cross in Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia.
