Overcoming Hardships and Leading a Successful Way-
During the initial phase of her career, Koheli admits that she had come across a few incidences where she faced gender bias. Confident about her knowledge and skills, she refused to fall prey to those petty issues. She knew from deep within that women are more sincere, responsible and make multi-dynamic employees. As of today in the corporate world, the gender bias is diminished and performance based assessment is done. Moreover, the attitude of the men in the society has changed drastically in accordance with the western world. The modern men are also ready to work hand in hand with their spouse at both home and workplace, thereby striking a successful balance between professional as well as personal life.
