#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
Today, over 12,000 women in business are a part of Women #BreakingBarriers. Since its inception in 2015, the unique summit for women is much-awaited in 9 cities across India.
The Zinnov-Nasscom India report reveals that in a country that witnesses the birth of almost 25,000 start-ups in a decade, women own over 20% of businesses in India. Digital acceleration has played a significant role in the rise of women-led micro, small and medium enterprises in the country.
Amidst the pandemic, many women-led businesses strengthened their online presence, leveraging the power of networking and collaboration. Doing so has enabled women to overcome challenges and contribute to the global economy.
As we observe this year’s International Women’s Day theme DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality, we look at how digitization has helped women spread their business initiative to a larger audience. Women’s Web which is a part of Vocallea Networks is on a mission to enable 1 Million women at work by connecting them to resources for business and also in corporate.
This year, Women’s Web brings together eminent entrepreneurs to discuss how we break digital barriers and enable more women to be part of innovation. Women #BreakingBarriers 2023 in Phase 1 will host entrepreneurs in Bangalore (22nd April), Mumbai (29th April), and Gurugram (6th May) and Phase 2 will be coming to Panjim, Coimbatore, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Jaipur.
The theme this year is DigitALL – Coming Together to Innovate! Where entrepreneurs will discuss everything digital – from effective online networking to pitching it right.
#BreakingBarriers 2023 will give aspiring and experienced women in business the opportunity to listen to incredible speakers in an environment that encourages networking and future collaboration among participants. The event is in partnership with 91Springboard, Google Developers, Radio City, Encubay, Artisante, and Xpresso by Daily Hunt.
The past editions have successfully helped participants collaborate in mutually beneficial ways. Peer mentoring and employment in full-time roles and as vendors have been notable.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
