“Starting your own business is a risky and a stressful endeavor. Research suggests that the fear of failure can be particularly strong for women as compared to men. Women, due to a lifetime of social conditioning, tend to be more risk-averse than men. We are always too careful, too shy, we are simply scared to jump without a SAFETY NET.Global Women Network is that Safety NET for aspiring women entrepreneurs of Ludhiana. All of us are here together to help and support each other grow and overcome hurdles along the way.
” Said Vice President Dr.Priyanka Kalra (Pschyciatrist)
The event was attended by 35 women who were working or aspiring to work and was very well received. GWN Ludhiana Chapter plans on conducting monthly events to promote growth and provide seamless mentorship to women.
