Mia by Tanishq presents the 5th edition of Mia SHEROES Summit – the largest forum for women professionals

The Third Mia SHEROES Summit 2017 to take place in Bangalore on 29th July

Bangalore, July 28th, 2017: Mia by Tanishq will launch the 5th edition of the Mia SHEROES Summit 2017 – the country’s largest forum for women professionals at a stellar event tomorrow. This third Mia Sheroes Summit will take place at ITC, Windsor. The event will see a line-up of emerging and established business leaders like  Deepika Tewari (General Manager-Marketing, Jewellery Division, Titan Company Limited), Kuppulakshmi Krishnamoorthy (Product Evangelist, Zoho Corportaion), Priya Krishnan (CEO, Founding Years Learning Solutions), Ashish Bhatt (Managing Director, XYNTEO), Sunil Rao (Partner, Business Services Lightspeed India Partner Advisers LLP), Babita Baruah (Managing Partner, Global Team Blue India), Deepak Ramola (Actor and Founder, Project Fuel). By bringing together influential professionals from all walks of life, the forum will help women to connect with modular opportunities, recognize their aspirations, and enable them to meet their individual needs.

Speaking about the association as title sponsor, Ms. Deepika Tewari –  General Manager – Marketing, Jewellery Division, Titan Company Limited said, “The workforce of the future will consist mostly of millennials, who are inherently inclined towards entrepreneurship. Which is just as well, because there are numerous examples to suggest that women entrepreneurs tend to be more ambitious and more successful than their male counterparts. Women also rank higher than men in leadership effectiveness, and are better at using soft skills for delivering superior business performance. On the corporate front, businesses want to recruit and retain more women employees today than in the past. I personally recommend that more female students should pursue STEM or business courses. But I believe that the single most important skill that you, as a professional, need to learn is to reinvent yourself – to let go of who you are today, and recreate yourself as the job environment around you changes.”

Commenting on the forthcoming summit, Sairee Chahal, Founder and CEO, SHEROES said, “This year’s Summit is special, as we respond to the global conversation around Future of Work. We inherently believe that women at work and future of work can be closely aligned. Gig economy, micro entrepreneurship and remote work along with core technology are pillars of future of work and women are a core part of that story. We also see the opportunity to engage in challenges brought by machine learning and neural technologies. SHEROES is every woman’s more from life network and being part of core global trends is our way of serving every member on the SHEROES network. Likewise, through this year’s summit, we track the future of work, share stories of inspiration and grow the tribe of women custom fitting their success. We are anticipating that this will help us in influencing more and more women to join either the workforce, micro-entrepreneurship, remote work or leadership roles.”

The Mia Sheores Summit 2017 in Bangalore will focus on a very important emerging theme ie. how the Future of Work will impact Indian women and more importantly how work places can be made more relevant to Indian women. Conversations will range from digitization as an enabler to new age workforce models, diversity and inclusion and entrepreneurships.
