But that word was opening up various possibilities simultaneously. That word – freedom –begged for understanding and invited dislocation.”

The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Anurag Shrivastava facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “Companies do want gender diversity, and that is why we see in campuses around to 30%-40% recruits are women. Within 5-8 years, dropout rates are high and that is a hugely concerning factor. In a lot of cases the stereotypical society is to be blamed.”
  4. 4. The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Deep Kalra facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | Women have been hard at work, breaking the proverbial glass ceiling since the early 80s. Nearly thirty-odd years on, we see them holding less than 5% of Fortune 500. This, despite the fact that more women than men have graduated from American Universities with bachelor’s degrees.
  5. 5. The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Deepa Soman facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “Given a choice I want to be born a woman, but in a family, state and country that gives me the freedom to be deeply creative, abundant, inspiring and free to choose my life, or with the courage to stand up and fight for what I believe is right.”
  6. 6. The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Geetha Kannan facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “Diversity in today's work environment should start right from the top in most companies, and the companies that have been positive have shaped cultures where awareness, acceptance and diversity are core company values.”
  7. 7. The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Gitanjali Chaturvedi facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “I once asked a group of women to write down what motivated them to work. I read responses such as “supporting my brother’s education in an engineering school,” “supplementing family income,” or “being able to provide extra needs for my children.” I don’t remember goals that focused on their own development or growth.”
  8. 8. The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Meeta Sengupta facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “I have never seen women not at work. Paid or not, there is always a buzz around them.”

The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Natasha Badhwar facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “After 20 years of being in the workplace, this is what I want to add to the conversation about women at work: Women are always at work. We need to start honouring the work we do every day.”

The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Osama Manzar facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “Mobiles are cheap and easy to access irrespective of literacy quotient. Women at grassroots feel safer and highly empowered even with the most basic mobile phone.”

  13. 13. The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Rajwant Sandhu facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | Visiting Panchayats in areas as diverse as Himachal Pradesh, Rajashan, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, W. Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, a few years ago, I was witness to the silent revolution that had come about. There was less of purdah and when the woman Pradhan is addressed by the BDO, the Deputy Commissioner, the Secretary to a State Government, the MLA, the Minister and Secretary to Government of India as “Pradhanji” or “Sarpanchji” does it not enable the elected woman representative and her sisters to hold their heads high?

  16. 16. The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Riitu Chugh facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “Everyday is an adventure – in doing great things in my work space.”

  23. 23. The SHEROES Report – Women at Work India 2014 Voices From The Horizon Teja Lele facebook.com/sheroesindia twitter.com/SHEROESIndia www.sheroes.in| | “Comments like “Ah, so you ‘work from home’?” “Isn’t that nice; you’re at home all day and you’re paid for it?” and “No office – I want a job like that too!” come my way regularly. It usually gets my hackles up to have to explain that work from home is challenging and fulfilling work.”
