Celebrated annually on 8th March, International Women’s Day is a day to honor women for their achievements and recognize them for the little and big contributions that they make for shaping the world towards betterment.
Focusing on this year’s theme “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change”, the day symbolized the essence of breaking free from gender norms and progressing towards a gender-balanced society. And we too at TCI strive towards fostering an equal opportunity workplace for women, supporting equality and diversity.
Thus, on this special day, TCI celebrated the spirit of womanhood at all its offices across India.
The day began with our VCMD, Shri DP Agarwal greeting the women employees with flowers. Everyone wrote messages to acknowledge the contribution that women make. Later in the day, a session on ‘Safety and Self-Defence’ by Gurugram Women Police Cell and an engaging dialogue on ‘Innovate for Change’ by Ms. Shalini Gupta, Head of Marketing, Incedo Inc. was conducted.
Ms. Shalini spoke on the need to increase the percentage of women working in different organizations to help maintain a balance, have mentors to encourage one to achieve better, and maintaining work-life balance.
In a world where women are standing together and speaking up for their rights, fighting against stereotyping and disparity, achieving gender equality is of utmost concern for societies, companies and economies to develop and transform. The future is exciting. Each one of us have significant contributions to make. Start now!
Let’s all help create #BalanceForBetter
