RISE is a two-day marquee event of ISB’s Women in Business Club, featuring inspiring Global Leaders. We want to celebrate their journey and, through them, the journey of all those unsung women heroes who have overcome challenging obstacles in life at multiple levels with grit and determination. Inspiring future leaders who wish to create an impact in the world is the main purpose of this event.
At ISB, we believe in fostering a culture of inclusivity and equality in both letter and spirit. The Women in Business Club at ISB aims to promote women to bridge the gap between potential and opportunity and encourage its members to become leaders who can build organizations with inclusion and growth.
The Women in Business Club, ISB is at the forefront to mark the winds of change led by women leaders around the world. LeadHers of our time have fought all odds and helped redefine the paradigm at a social, community, or individual level. Through the lineup of events, we want to inspire the next generation of leaders to keep challenging the status quo and shoot for newer horizons by engaging in thought-provoking conversations and ground-breaking ideas with these trail-blazing personalities.
Womxn (nope, that’s not a typo*) leaders have come a long way, and at this point, women are probably in a better position than ever before. The road so far has not been easy by any means and we have lots of reasons to celebrate!
2020 saw the first female Vice President of the United States, Ms. Kamala Harris. Dr. Emmanuelle Charpentier and Dr.Jennifer A. Doudna showed us the power of women in science by walking away with the Nobel prize in Chemistry - marking the first time in history that the prize has gone to two women. Dr Manabi Bandopadhyay also broke some serious barriers to become the first openly transgender Ph.D in West Bengal.
Despite great strides forward, women and girls across the world are still refused access to education and political participation. Even in the developed world, womxn are prevented from making deeply personal choices in their private lives and thousands battle everyday discrimination at home and the workplace. It’s time that we all choose to challenge the status quo.
Let’s come together as womxn and allies, and choose to break the patterns of injustice wherever we can. Come, let’s conquer!
