International Women's Day: Nanmadhi R
I am a very safe person by nature. Very hesitant to take risks in life. But my education and work decisions have been quite the opposite to what I am.
I am a Civil Engineering graduate with a Master’s in Construction Management. A very challenging course and field to work with.
The recognition and acknowledgment I get from the world whenever I say I am a Civil Engineer is exquisite.
This is just a small step in my life to break the barrier into a field which was earlier dominated by men. I feel equal now!
I can't imagine what my life would be had it not been for the strong women who taught me, loved me, encouraged me, corrected me, and walked alongside me. My life, my career, and our world is better because of women. And so, I celebrate International Women's Day every day of every year.

I will cultivate an open-minded environment to foster gender equality in the workplace. I will also continue to mentor and encourage junior colleagues to become future leaders in the organization.

Equality and diversity in the workplace are essential elements of a business strategy, vision, and mission. An organization has a social responsibility to provide equitable opportunities which generate a feeling of belonging. When people feel they belong, they are more committed to the organization.
