Asia’s largest summit on Women Leaders, the She Leads Summit 2018 was held last week at Hotel Hilton in Mumbai. Manasi Kirloskar was the Keynote Speaker and she shared her thoughts on “Fighting the Gender Stereotype”, with her inspiring talk.
Speaking at the session Ms. Kirloskar gave the example of our former Prime Minister, Mrs. Indira Gandhi – the first Woman Country Leader in the world!! Continuing with current examples she stated that our banking sector is ruled by women, our celebrated female athletes have put India on the world map and so on in every sector like Biotech, Media, Entertainment, Music, Government, Healthcare, Authors and many more. In most of the industries women work in equal capacity to men. They may have faced discrimination and fought an extra mile to earn their positions, but it’s their sheer competence and not their gender that have permitted their success and respect.
To quantify the affect of economic progress Ms. Kirloskar referred to a McKinsey research that tells us that if women’s economic participation were to be at the same level as men, by 2025, $28 trillion could be added to the world’s economic growth. But this can only be achieved if we all work together.
Ms. Kirloskar closed the keynote session stating that – Let us choose to be true and live our lives to the benchmarks that we set for ourselves.
