Women deserve every chance to be emancipated

As a businesswoman, I realise that it’s important to help other women enhance their skills and be financially independent

I graduated in BBA Aviation Operation programme (2013-2016) from UPES. During this course, introduction to concepts such as management and leadership, business communication, corporate social responsibility, financial management, organisational behaviour and many more helped in my understanding of managing a business with a handful of employees. These courses also enhanced my skills of communicating, decision making and team management.

I firmly believe that theoretical knowledge is incomplete until there is a real-life application. The subjects which we were taught in the programme helped me to apply all those learnings in my life, personally as well as professionally. There were several workshops and projects, such as dissertation and community service, that taught me valuable lessons in team management and collaboration.

The faculty, seniors and career services team at UPES were extremely supportive at every step of my life. I was given a chance to be on the Ignite team as Head of Event Management Department. I was also the class representative so there were many responsibilities entrusted with by our class coordinator Mr. Shubendu Vimal.

The internship was in the summer of 2015 and mine was at RHIAL, i.e. Hyderabad International Airport, on a 12-hour shift. It was my first exposure of the aviation industry where I mastered several skills such as self-control, multitasking and people management.

The education system at UPES works like a well-oiled machine. It helped me in getting admission in one of the renowned universities in London for my Masters, post which I interned in Singapore for one year. This global exposure gave me a whole new perspective of the world around me.

Today, as Director of Rcube Healthcare Industries Pvt. Ltd., all my core competencies are put to test. Quick decision-making, proper communication and financial planning are important for the business that I run.

Being a woman business leader is still a challenge in this country as the patriarchal mindset still prevents men from taking orders from a female boss. In order to change this primitive gender stereotypes, my NGO, Rcube Foundation, is helping women to enhance their skills and be financially independent.

Workplaces should be gender neutral and both women and men should be assessed on merit and the hard work that they put in.

Women can do wonders in any field if they are given the freedom to decide their career paths. My office has more women than men and most of them undertake extensive travel and field inspection duties. Women deserve every single chance to be empowered, educated and be in control of their own destiny.
