The concept of “Women Empowerment” has always puzzled me when once in a year on Women’s Day there is so much celebration and buzz around. It leaves me wondering what real empowerment is, even in 21st century. Are Women really Empowered yet? Does it only revolve around being able to “Wear What you Want” or “Being able to come back safely from Office or Parties “?
Most of the women in India are not aware the salaries and earnings of their Spouses. What are the family investments and no access to family funds in case of emergency? Research says the percent of women with control of finances is miniscule…
According to a study conducted by the Genpact Centre for Women’s Leadership, more than 50% of working women in the country leave their jobs to take care of their children at the age of 30. Even among those who manage to return, 48 percent drop out within four months of re-joining the workforce. And 24 percent make compromise with level or roles in their career as employers tend to lose confidence on them.
The real test of this situation was during the second wave of Covid when we lost so many young friends and relatives untimely all around. While the life is back to normal for most but no one can the imagine life of those women who lost their better half suddenly to the pandemic. Completely unprepared and all the responsibilities yet to be fulfilled. That is when The HER Tribe was conceptualized with a vision to help those left in a lurch.
No one can reduce the pain they are going through but with help and guidance on finding a job, management and planning of finances and prioritization of health.. it could be a small bit to help them rise again.
Matter of fact is, women at large, irrespective of being homemakers or professionals, mostly do not bother about finances or their own emotional well-being. So, here on The-HER-tribe we are going to talk about issues that matter the most and really make women feel Empowered with focus on Financial Literacy, Emotional Well-being, Skill Upgrade for Professional growth and Women health Issues etc
We’ll also have subject matter experts joining in for each of these topics.. making it a Power tribe. Let’s come forward to create an Empowered women tribe together. No matter where you are in life, Inspire and support the women around you. Success is never reached alone.. and wisdom is sweeter when shared.
I welcome you to join The HER Tribe as a Participant/ Volunteer or a Beneficiary and make a beginning.
Empowered Women, Empower Women !
Be Empowered, Be You !
