The eBook – The Corporate Women’s Little Diary – launch date March 8th 2022 (IWD)
The ‘WeToo‘ Campaign was launched last year on International Women’s Day with the tagline – Real Women – Real Stories. This was an opportunity for women to give them an unbiased independent platform to stand up speak to inspire and uplift other working women who are a part of the professional corporate world. We had strong women leaders who came forward and shared their stories in a Panel Discussion which had multiple episodes featuring over 50 women on hard-hitting topics related to the growth of workforce in India, challenges and struggles of women leaders.
Owing to the success of Season one of the ‘WeToo‘ Campaign, which was filled thought-provoking panel discussions that helped strengthen and build confidence in women giving them the power to overcome any adverse situation. To treasure and preserve these impactful stories and knowledge that was shared, the ‘WeToo
Co-authored by 50 global corporate women leaders, the aim of the E-book is to kickstart and boost the career of every young girl in India. Be the guiding light. To keep the main goal of spreading awareness untouched and to avoid any kind of bias, the community refrained from seeking out any financial sponsors. To make this endeavor a success, we need your help, support, time and encouragement.
Speaking about the eBook Mrs. Abha Singh said, “I pay tribute to all the women of grit and gumption who face tough situations in life with their heads held high. When I flipped through the book, I could feel the positivity as every chapter ended on an empowering note. As someone who has worked for women’s empowerment, fighting for justice without fear across, I am thrilled to write this foreword and be a part of this massive collaborative effort, which has taken the form of this book. It has emerged as a forerunner to the previously taboo topic of women’s issues. I am confident that this eBook will benefit the younger generation of women because such topics are not taught in our schools or colleges, it will inspire future generations to believe in their own dreams and to move forward in life and careers without guilt.”
Poonam Vijay Thakkar, Founder & Author said, “I’ve been working in corporate India for over 21 years and have witnessed many ups and downs.” I realised that when you’re down, you need mentors more than when you’re flying high. While success stories can motivate and inspire, it is when you read about failures and adversity that you learn. This book will point you in the right direction. Each chapter contains a variety of viewpoints on issues that are important to women and will culminate in a meaningful conclusion. The solution is based on the story’s gist. We hope that this eBook will serve as a guide for the next generation of young female executives as they prepare for careers in the corporate world.
