Initiating the debate, Ms. Vanita Datla, Chairperson, CII Telangana said: “The programme is based on the theme of ‘New Possibilities…New Horizons for women.’ We believe that a woman has and is constantly engaged in multiple roles in her life. Many a time, woman’s competing priorities limit her progress in career primarily because of the challenges associated with juggling work and family. It is commendable that women in general have risen up to the challenge of multitasking under pressure and deliver efficiently both professionally and personally. However, the onus is also on the family and the organizations to create an environment conducive for her constant professional growth and success.”
The session was attended by more than 500 working professionals, entrepreneurs and industry leaders!
