Women in Family Business

Tailor-made for women belonging to business families, this programme focusses on their role, and the most significant challenges they face, direct and indirect, with their family business. The programme will delve into the effectiveness of a businesswoman, and her contribution to building a long-lasting family business.

Most large and small businesses, in India and around the world, are family-controlled. Managing a family business successfully across generations has always been very challenging. However, there is growing recognition on the different roles women of business families can play in the success of their business. Hence, there is a critical need to prepare them to contribute effectively, both at operational and leadership levels, including the Board of Directors. This remains pivotal, whether they are actively involved or moderately, since all business decisions significantly impact family wealth and welfare.
