On the occasion of International Women’s Day 2021, Yotta is proud to celebrate women power, by putting the spotlight on exceptional women who have made a mark for themselves, either as a Business or IT Leader.
Recognizing their effort of excelling in their chosen fields, converting every obstacle into opportunities, and assuming leadership roles in their respective organizations, we are delighted to feature some of the leading Women Leaders of India Inc. who chose to follow their passion and dreams and today, they have truly become an inspiration and mentors for many aspiring women professionals.
As these women leaders set examples before the society and the world at large, let’s get to know more about their growth journey.
“I don’t feel anyone else can influence your growth. It is up to us to make a mark for ourselves and not expect the society or anyone else to give you any special privileges. Only skillset, performance, and attitude should be the benchmark for hiring and not gender or diversity.”
CTO, YES Securities
“I do not believe women shy away from any challenge, let alone that of managing technology. With so many calls on their time, prioritising is logical and unfortunately, technology operations tend to be very demanding across a 24×7 cycle.”
CIO, Mother Dairy
“While a female leader has to face a lot of challenges, there are numerous ways to overcome them. We need to focus on finding ways to eliminate obstacles rather than wasting time on reactions”
Head – IT, Sany Heavy Industry India Pvt. Ltd.
“Culture of inclusiveness and diversity comes from a common goal. And every obstacle has an opportunity hidden in it. If you can overcome the obstacle by providing an acceptable solution that cannot be discarded easily, then your progress is assured.”
MD, Asit C. Mehta Investment Intermediates Ltd.
“The secret sauce to success is a blend of passion and dedication. If women are passionate about their work, they can reach to any kind of leadership role.”
Chief People & Tech Strategy Officer, Xebia
“Organisations with greater workplace diversity achieve better results, as women lead with empathy and make better and faster decisions that give companies a serious competitive edge.“
BFSI Technology Leader
“Women need to play to the strength of their own skillset, instead of matching the style of their male counterparts. If you are offered a new role or a challenge, do not underestimate your competencies or get tentative about your eligibility – see learning as part of the job.”
Mehjabeen Taj Aalam
Technology Head – Digital & Customer Engagements, Tata Capital
“It is a well-known and accepted fact that women bring diversity in skills as well as higher Empathy and Ethics Quotient. We, as women, have been gifted with unique qualities that make our lives, workplace, and the world a better place. Go, use these qualities abundantly.”
Priti Rathi Gupta
MD, Anand Rathi Shares and Stock Brokers Ltd., and Founder, LXME
“My success can be attributed to being passionate about what I do, attention to details, and proper planning. Women professionals need to work without expecting special treatment and deliver results like any other colleague. The recognition will be purely on merit basis.”
Group CIO, FCB Ulka Advertising
