Addressing the audience at the seminar, Ms. Vanita said she believes that a woman constantly engages in multiple roles in her life.
“Many a time, woman’s competing priorities limit her progress in career primarily because of the challenges associated with juggling work and family,” she noted.

“However, the onus is also on the family and the organizations to create an environment conducive for her constant professional growth and success.”
