The first session of YWLJ edition 2.0 was conducted on December 10, by lead facilitator Shahida Hussain, corporate trainer, POSH & DEI consultant, Zayaan Consulting Group and visiting faculty at Praxis Business School, who shared her insights with Praxis PGDM women students. Focussed on strengthening their understanding of the self, the programme helps the participants to build skills and behaviours that work best for them.

The programme concludes in January next year after a series of such workshops.

Commenting on the initiative, Prof. Charanpreet Singh, founder director, Praxis Business School Foundation, said, “India Inc. is a lot more dependent on its women leaders. The time has come to lay the foundation in educational institutes to encourage our girls to become better leaders for tomorrow. The YWLJ curriculum is draws from the rich experiences of the facilitators, who focus on the details of leading one’s self and identifying and developing more leadership traits in others. I am confident that this will make a world of difference going forward, to the careers of our women students.”

Shahida Husain opined “These workshops do not only sculpt leaders for tomorrow through strengthening leadership skills, leveraging power, diagnose situations, and master successful negotiation tactics that prioritize professional growth goals, but also understanding the women’s perspective in business, grapple with the impacts of gender on authority, business relationships, and effective leadership.’’

Praxis has been promoting women empowerment and has been part of the global Women in Tech movement for some years now. As part of the push, Praxis had already constituted a Women in Tech scholarship, enabling eligible women to avail their career-changing courses at a discounted fee. They have also collaborated with NGOs regularly to spread Digital Literacy amongst the girl child. This collaboration with MILT New Revolution of India on YWLJ is their latest step in that direction.
