Gone are the days when women were strictly confined to household activities. New women are breaking the chains of the conventional concept of an Indian woman. In India, women have gone onto leading the nation towards global success and recognition. Women have been toe to toe with men and on some occasions, they have even outshone their male counterparts. Women have also been playing a major role in improving the quality and credibility of the services offered in the Indian business realm for many years now. As the famous inventor, entrepreneur and television personality, Lori Greiner said, “Dear optimist, pessimist, and realist – while you guys were busy arguing about the glass of wine, I drank it! Sincerely, the opportunist!” Women entrepreneurs have been able to make the best use of the available opportunities to leverage their growth opportunities. The presence of women consultants not only brings in gender diversity but they have also become instrumental in introducing innovative technologies and operational methods in the industry. Many exemplary women have gone on to become industry stalwarts and visionaries who are pioneering their respective industries. Their success is inspiring many more to go against the grain and start their own business ventures.
