Priya also notes that while the glass ceiling has been shattered, there is still a long way to go for significant numbers of women to reach management positions across industries. While admitting that progress has been made, Priya says much more needs to be done.
“Lack of mentorship is a big challenge for women,” she believes. “The lack of a social and professional support system is a problem,” she adds.
On the subject of work-life balance, Priya complains that it is a constant challenge for women. “Women tend to feel more guilty about the struggle between work and life,” she says.
Talking about the success mantras for women entrepreneurs, Priya says that constant perseverance and strength are the key to success. Waste is part of being an entrepreneur, and market acceptance for a female entrepreneur isn’t so easy, she notes.
“Have a clear vision of the characteristics of the product and the market. Keep an eye on short- and long-term goals,” she recommends.
