Women's Officer

In my previous educational institutions, I provided services in various leadership roles and learnt many things. One thing that inspired me to be a Women's Officer is to overcome the barrier that keeps women down especially in industry and academia. Breaking the glass ceiling has always been my point since my nomination.

During my role as part time officer, I hope I can get insights from my colleagues to streamline all the ideas and thoughts I have about 'progress for women' within the University.

The main things I will be focusing on are 

  • Establishing a Women Empowerment and grievances cell / Internal Complaints Cell
  • "Keeping it alive"

I am an art enthusiast. I am equally interested in arts and sciences. I have been a student of Indian Carnatic Music for around a decade. Singing and dance are what makes me feel excited. Besides that, I'd love to volunteer whenever possible.
