To have impactful and influential Women in leadership roles, who have equal representation as well as an equal voice, across organisations in India and in rest of South Asia
To provide a road map as well as the tools and know-how to create an enabling ecosystem for women to get equal opportunities for attaining leadership positions
Let’s build a world of equals-
Equal opportunity to dream,
Equal access to education,
Equal rights to aspire
Equal freedom to choose.
Let not gender decree that she may succeed
Or set limits to her reach.
Let not gender dictate the path she takes
the words she speaks,
the clothes she wears,
the friends she makes.
Let’s give her the space to breathe
To speak up and even laugh out loud.
With sights set high, let her soar to the skies
Let’s be the wind beneath her wings.
Her time has come
May we see her shine
In companies and board rooms,
Leading countries, commanding troops,
Exploring space and winning the race.
It’s time for us all to lend a hand
To start a ripple, even a tiny one
To usher in ‘an equiverse’
Where it no longer seems strange
to be seen in equal numbers, with equal voice
Gracing every sphere of our space.
