"When I started out my professional life, I did not think about the ceiling, the pay gap, or topics such as diversity and inclusion. I came into the workforce believing that the playing field was level. I became mindful of many of these topics as my career progressed. As many other women, I too experienced being excluded, and realized that my journey had hurdles, which as a young ambitious girl I had never imagined. Over time I realised we needed to build the right networks and a support system to overcome these challenges, get stronger and keep on rising. And Power Women was born! There are so many powerful women are doing amazing work and their stories need to be told. We want to not only bring these women leaders into the C-Suites, Boardrooms and make them have multi-billion dollar exits but we also want to inspire the next generation of women."

Often our strength comes from knowing that we can lean on one another and learn from others. We need to be role models and pillars of strength for each other and for the next generation of women to come."

"PAB has been a metamorphic experience, a truly meaningful program, where personal growth, satisfaction, well-being is given the same attention as career growth & guidance. This peer-to-peer coaching has been very relatable as we all are going through different phases of our lives, come from diverse backgrounds & have a broad set of learnings that can be applied to each other’s lives. It's also a way to way to remain responsible & accountable for your decisions. I highly recommend it."

Head, Corporate Communications IQVIA "One of the best decisions I made for 2021 was to join a Personal Advisory Board, a new initiative launched by Power Women of India that I have enjoyed being a member of since being invited to join in mid-2020. It's less than a month since the PAB initiative was formally launched but truly feels much longer because so much has been gained and learnt already! "
