My Journey While Moving Ahead In My Career:
P&G was the best foundation for anyone looking to make a career in sales and marketing. The opportunity to learn on the job, the importance of taking learning from failure and responsible empowerment were all learned at P&G. the time spent here helped me shape up as a person and a professional. not to mention some of the lasting friendships forged here. P&G also gave me tremendous experiences that further drove the passion for driving diversity and inclusion. The company had begun the journey of D&I prior to most other companies and I had a good exposure to leading this for women in sales. Truly enriching time in this great organization.
From early year challenges as basic as not having ladies' restrooms at distributor locations to experiencing insensitivity, especially during life-stage changes. But I think women are coming around to finding their ways of breaking the glass ceiling, rather ignoring or not believing that there is one. I think the challenges do reduce with consistency in performance, assertion and I believe having a good EQ always helps to get a strong connect with people and take decisions with a more balanced view.
