About the Event
As a working woman, how often would you have asked yourself whether or not you deserve that coveted job with the corner office? Do you experience a nagging thought deep in your heart that maybe you can only achieve career success up to a certain point?
At this book reading, Apurva Purohit, author of “Lady, You’re The Boss”, outlines how one can avoid the prejudices and gender stereotypes that prevent you from rising through the ranks and achieving the pinnacle you rightly deserve.
About the Author
Apruva is a leading advocate of gender diversity in corporate India, and has authored national bestsellers, including 'Lady You’re Not a Man!' and 'Lady, You’re the Boss!' She’s stressed upon the need for men to become allies in the fight for gender equality, and also highlighted the need for organisations to have more women in the boardroom. She’s even cited research to establish that if women work at their full potential, it could add up to $28 trillion to the global GDP by 2025. Yet, women don’t constitute even half of the global workforce. The situation is bleaker in India. Apurva has also outlined steps to tackle invisible gender bias in the workplace, and called for women to be more assertive about their professional achievements. Another area of her writings focuses on “mindfulness” and the need to occasionally disconnect from a tech-obsessed world. She urges us to find beauty in the simple and mundane things of life.
