MYTH: Diversity & Inclusion is an HR problem
The common perception and misconception is that diversity is an HR problem - as long as HR hires more women, the problem goes away.
Not it doesn't.
Even companies with 50% of new hires being women have less than 10% representation of females at the senior leadership levels.
REALITY: Diversity & Inclusion is a retention problem
Professional women face many challenges during their working life - some come from their changing life stages (marriage and pregnancy are two key ones) while others are challenges from within the workplace. Managing the constant push and pull on their time and attention, while also being the career-focused-go-getter they intend to be, can be a real struggle. The lack of appreciation for this struggle and a poor approach to dealing with it is often the reason why women tend to give up one for the other.
Everyone in an organisation, especially those at the senior-most levels, must work together to fix it.
How the "Set Her Up For Success" program can help
Set Her Up For Success is a program designed to help working women stay the course in their careers.
We don’t believe in compromising a woman’s ambitions in any sphere that she chooses – family, fame or fortune.
This 3-hour program by Mrs. Sangeeta Talwar helps women to focus on their goals, prioritize all the things they want to achieve, and handle them with confidence.
As a credible role model, Sangeeta leads by example. She was one of the first women in the FMCG sector in the country, having been hired by Nestle as a management trainee in the 70's. In the course of her extremely successful career, she has transitioned through several CXO level roles and is credited with having broken through the proverbial ‘glass ceiling’ in corporate India.
Set Her Up For Success is based on Sangeeta's experiences and the insights gained through her journey as a woman who reached the top.
This 3-hour session will inspire women to think about, and develop a perspective on, different aspects of their work life including:
- A clear sense of purpose
- Confident choices & decisions
- Promotions, leadership roles
- Staying on top of the game
- Leading from the front
- Potential potholes
- Networking & partnerships
Managing a career, a home, a family and a business all together is not easy at all, and it's not supposed to be. But with a supportive ecosystem, it is doable. This program helps women to work on and build their own ecosystem.
