Industrial Automation celebrates women leaders and entrepreneurs in the field on the occasion of International Women’s Day celebrated universally on March 8.
As far quotes go, this one captures it best: “Wherever, opportunities were given to women, they have done better
than men in India.” Thus spoke Amitabh Kant, CEO, Niti Aayog, sometime in August 2019, speaking at the Women Transforming India awards function. “Women have to play a very critical role because by next decade we will have 75 million women getting into the workforce in India. At present, India has only about 27 per cent women in the workforce and we have to take it to the world average of 48 per cent,” he added, for good measure. Incidentally, the theme for International Women’s Day 2020 is ‘I am Generation Equality: Realising Women’s Rights’, with the hashtag #EachforEqual. Time to give equal representation to women at the workplace to realise the full potential of the country.
For the March 2020 edition, Industrial Automation invited women professionals in the automation arena to speak about their experience. These interviews are featured in the print edition as well as online, and a gist of it is presented in this feature.
