A few days ago, I was invited to Intel at talk about “Career Investments that every women at work should make” [PS: The request came out of my article on EconomicTimes]. From what I gathere, they conduct such sessions regularly as a part of their initiatives to enable and equip women to craft out long-term careers. Usually, internal women leaders are invited.
But starting 2016, they decided to invite people from industry. I was excited since I was the first external speaker, and that was an absolute honor.
It was a full house (much to the pleasant suprise of the organizer’s themselves), and very engaging and well recieved session.
My presentation is here.
The response and feedback from the session has been awesome. Some excrepts from the feedback are below:
“This was one of the best sessions I have attended on this topic. I can see what mistakes I am making and what areas I need to work on”
“Very true and loaded with real-life wisdom and experiences. Given me lots of food for thought”
“As a working woman, I know that I don’t invest enough in my personal brand and professional networks. Time for me to take action”
“It was great to listen another Indian woman who is experiencing a lot of similar issues like me. Sometimes just knowing that I am not alone is a great feeling”
