STEM SISTERS AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
30th December 2021
3 pm to 6 pm
In this workshop, ambassadors learn practical wisdom for leadership through equity and a transformational lens, using peer sharing and cases to support the evolution of their approaches to leadership.
Following the success of our first session, on December 30th we offered our second programme, ‘Leadership Wisdom.’ The programme began with a brief preview of the next sessions as well as social media networks to follow for future updates. Our three panellists, Veena Sahajwalla, Muneera Bano, and Veena Sahajwalla, told their experiences of “how they did it,” or how they became successful in their STEM pursuits. This spurred discourse and debate among our ambassadors giving them the opportunity to openly share their own personal aspirations and what barriers they are facing. This led to ambassador networking and a Q&A session, where our ambassadors and the audience were given the opportunity to ask the panellists questions and gain further information.
Before concluding the event with the workshop activity led by Sugandha Bhargava Chapman. Sugandha educated us on the stigma associated with women in leadership during this exercise, followed by an explanation of the mindset necessary to succeed as a leader.
