We strongly believe in aligning with relevant causes as this is a great way to institutionalize social responsibility into the company culture. It's an important aspect of our company’s culture.
Everyone can contribute in giving back and it’s never too late. Even minimum efforts towards social change can prove to bring a positive impact on the world around us.
With this aim, our founder Atreyee Borooah Thekedath, member of the Vital Voices Global leadership Network has been organizing the “Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk" for last several years. This is a part of a global movement to inspire a rising generation of young women through mentorship.
Held in celebration of International Women’s Day in communities around the world, the Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk convenes established women leaders and emerging women leaders to walk together in their community. As they walk, they discuss their personal and professional challenges and successes to establish a mentoring relationship. The event in Guwahati, Assam, India is one of hundreds of mentoring walks taking place in simultaneously in 60 countries.
This initiative has helped many women who wanted to learn from the mentors' experience and perspective. It’s the ideal opportunity to demonstrate the power of women’s leadership and unite women in support of other women.
This event has been growing in strength year after year. The fifth Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk was held at Guwahati at the Jayanta Kumar - Lakhimi Borooah Sadan by our founder and flag bearer Atreyee Borooah Thekedath on 9th March 2019. The event brought together nearly a hundred women and it was a stupendous success.
