Thankfully I got to meet the first set of people in my new company. As you spend more time at work, you would be changing roles in your professional and personal lives and that is where the attitude

Corporate India has rolled out a lot of rules and benefits
for the women and it is our duty to use them wisely because when you misuse one of these rules or benefits you are bringing down the value of every women in the corporate world. That being said there is still a gap that can be bridged on the ‘Gender Equality’ front. For every women, it is her decisions, reactions and personality that helps her weave a successful career in this corporate world. All the successful women I have met in my corporate life so far have overcome many hurdles and fear nothing! As Jaycee Dugard rightly said- “I want to be remembered for what I
do, not what happened to me”.
