Arthan to organize forum on ‘Women in Leadership’ on 8th March


Noting the efforts and the effectiveness of women in fighting against the effects of the global pandemic, ‘Women in leadership: achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world’ has been identified as the theme for the International Women’s Day 2021 by the UN. To create a world where women have equitable opportunities to grow and excel, there is a need to create platforms for women to share their learnings and lessons.

Taking these thoughts and ideas forward, Arthan is organizing the ‘Women in Leadership: Shaping the future’ forum on 8th March 2021, 2:30 to 5:30 pm. This session is open for all.

A lot has been said about women in leadership positions. Various articles and discussion forums talk about the lessons we can learn from women on being extremely effective leaders.

The onset of the pandemic brought this conversation to the forefront, with many organizations and even nations with women leaders showing better performance on various indicators. According to an analysis published in the Harvard Business Review in December 2020, women were rated to be more effective with indicators that they performed better in a crisis.


The speakers participating in the session are Anita Kumar | India CSR Lead | Amazon; Aparna Uppaluri | Program Officer | Ford Foundation; Richa Pant |Head – Group CSR & Sustainability | ‎L&T Finance; Katie Pyle | Head of Research & Executive Committee Member | Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship & Democracy; Akanksha Sharma | Global Head – Social Impact & Sustainability | Sterlite Technologies Ltd; along with Satyam Vyas | Founder |Arthan;Mahamaya Navlakha | Co-Founder |Arthan&AnchalKakkar | Co-Founder | Arthan.

The forum aims to bring together leaders from the sector — both men and women — to talk about “The leadership roles of women in times of a crisis” & “Using gender-lens to create an equal world”. The discussion would aim to throw light on how the perceptions and notions around women leaders have changed over the past year and how the gender-lens can be applied for creating equal opportunities in the workplace.
