Preeti Gupta: Group Executive President, Aditya Birla Group

Solving gender disparity at the workplace is a complex catch-22. From her long experience in HR, Preeti knows only too well how tough it is for companies to undo years of gender bias and status quo to encourage young women to rise higher up the ranks alongside men. What effect do shorter shelf lives have on the drive and performance of women versus their male counterparts? How can women ace a game where the rules aren’t written for them in the first place? How does one balance family duties with personal ambition?

Preeti advises young working women on how best to navigate these tricky waters and use their strengths to master circumstances.
