The gap is more than 50 percent points which is much higher than under developed countries like Rwanda. Despite educational gains, the labor force participation rate for women in 2017 was 28.5%  (compared to 82% for men). By 2027 the working-age population in India… Continue reading Aspiring to reach the C-suite- here is why you should not give up comrade

My daughter is 3.5 years old now and has quite a strong opinion on several things.
