Ipsita Kathuria, and Neeru Abrol, address at SAIL Corporate Office on International Women’s day.

Ipsita Kathuria, Founder & CEO, TalentNomics India and Neeru Abrol, Board Member, TalentNomics India addressed 100+women in SAIL Corporate Office on International Women’s day.

Ipsita and Neeru both started their careers in SAIL and moved on to senior positions within SAIL and outside. They were very warmly welcomed by their ex colleagues and friends. During the 2 hours session, they shared their insights on what is needed for women to succeed in their careers.

They both appealed to the SAIL management to involve more men in events like this and not restrict such discussions to only one day in the year. Sensitizing male colleagues to hurdles faced by women in rising in their career is as important as women staying motivated and investing in themselves for future leadership roles.

Some specific steps that women can take to rise to senior levels that were discussed are:

  • Strong drive for results
  • Having confidence in themselves
  • Building connections within and outside their teams and organizations
  • Raising hands for challenging assignments and critical roles
  • Investing in themselves
  • Supporting each other
  • Mentoring junior women
