Sakshi Tulsian Co-Founder, COO POSist Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
The challenges of being a woman executive in a top role : Toughest part being a women executive in a top role though is the fact that you need to be an all-rounder in all the dimensions of life and not only in business. i will not say that men live in one dimension only and don't really bother about personal life but they can always wash their hands off certain responsibilities at home and catch a break as its socially acceptable, a woman on the other hand can't do that at times no matter how liberal people around you are.
You have to create a balance between your personal and professional life. This always helps in the longer run. There are highs and lows both in business and at home but the approach should be that neither one should be affected because of the other.
Educational Background -Bachelor Of Technology-Computer Science
Working in Male-dominated field of IT
Its Male dominated because Males have been taking more initiatives but that definitely doesn't mean its prohibitive or restrictive for females. Infact its very much welcoming in case as a female you take up things and deliver on them.
Does a Glass ceiling exist?
I don't think so, not in the new age technology driven startup world for sure. No one has time to analyse you on the basis of gender, in case you can learn faster and deliver, there is no ceiling.
