I was honoured to be a part of a panel celebrating the achievements of women last night. Several entrepreneurial-spirited women who are leaders in their respective industries shared stories of their paths, and to hear how each of them had overcome adversity to fight for gender equality was beyond inspirational. Knowing firsthand many of the struggles discussed - having seen and experienced them - it’s empowering to remember that it’s up to us to act as forces of change, to bridge the gender gap that still permeates our society. Thank you for having me Canadian Tamils' Chamber of Commerce - CTCC - I had a blast, knowing that through our open conversation we were making a difference for future generations. An additional thanks to Ninaivukal - Moments of Events and Tamil News ekuruvi for these lovely pictures!
