Ascendion’s Sangeeta Shetty was quoted in a CXOtoday article by Narasimha Raju on March 7, 2023, in honor of the upcoming International Women’s Day. The article spotlighted several women leaders at technology companies, discussing ways to not only break barriers but to also empower women.
“Gender bias is mostly implicit in individuals’ nature – moulded by society, culture & experiences making it difficult for women in tech too, being overlooked for promotions, leadership roles, subject to harassment etc. However, there is hope, as awareness of gender inequality is growing, and efforts are being made to address it.
Work-life balance is the most cliched topic, it is also one of the biggest reasons, women are reluctant taking vital roles despite readiness or capability. To cope, Women leaders can prioritize their well-being by practicing self-care, delegating tasks, seeking flexible work arrangements, and relying on support from colleagues, mentors and family members.
At Ascendion, we are deeply empathetic and support our women employees in various ways. Our women employees, benefit from our work-from-anywhere policy and Ascend Again program that supports working mothers in returning to work. Our focus on empathy and support ensures that women have an equal voice and can perform their best. Our ‘Revive’ program is focused on celebrating current women leaders and building women leaders of tomorrow.
My personal advice as a woman in tech is to build strong networks, advocate for yourself, continuously develop skills to stay relevant, lead with empathy, take risks, step out of your comfort zone, and seize challenging opportunities.”
By Sangeeta Shetty – Senior Director, Human Resources at Ascendion
