Summit for women professionals on March 5

If you are a working woman and wondering how to channel your expertise and creativity so that it brings out the best in you and helps you to move ahead in the corporate ladder, this summit is for you. SiliconIndia is organising a forum for women technology professionals on March 5 for the International Women's Day on March 8. Interestingly, the one-day summit will take place across six cities including Hyderabad, Mumbai, New Delhi, Pune, Chennai and Bengaluru. In the city, the SiliconIndia Women Leadership Summit will take place at KLN Prasad Auditorium (FAPCII), Federation House in Red Hills.

Sridevi Potu, VP, LGS Global one of the speakers believes, networking is the key to one's success in a professional life. “Women slog in their careers but are not smart enough to promote themselves. They do not get the recognition and make simple mistakes in their jobs. It could be one of the reasons that success eludes them,” she says. The summit provides a platform for like-minded women to learn, develop, connect, and network so that it educates and empowers them.

Akila Jaikumar, director, Bodhtree pauses for a second when asked about the issues she would dwell on at the summit. “I am a scientist by qualification but had to switch fields. I want to share my experiences and tell the young women that they can make it big, even if they do not have the relevant academic background. The onus is one should have the willingness to work hard and be focussed,” she says. The positive aspect for having a meet for the technology professionals is to show that ‘there is an explosion of female work force in IT sector and young girls, who are confused and undecided about their career can plan their careers.'

The summit also hopes to be a ‘confidence booster' to the participants, who can hear and meet women who are leaders in their own way. The women leadership summit is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and there is a registration fee of Rs. 250.
