A supportive society can help combat violence against women
Industry leaders are in powerful position to act as bridge between activism around women's rights and the corporate world
As I reflect on my life, as a businesswoman and mother, I feel fortunate—fortunate to have had a supportive environment while growing up, the freedom to pursue an education of my choice, as well as to decide the course of my life. I’m also aware that the ability to make these choices for ourselves is a rare luxury. As this awareness grew inside me, I realized that I was in a position to use my personal space, time and professional clout to catalyze change and help promote causes that I strongly believed in. I believe we need to lead the change that we want to see around us.
