Just as in years past, WE Local India kicked off this week with a high level of energy and excitement in Bengaluru. Our opening keynote speaker, Sabina Nawaz, founder of Nawaz Consulting, kicked things off to an eager audience. Sabina revealed how successful leaders deal with “junk mail” of the mind more effectively by designing better filters. She explored ways our attendees can design effective filters to everyday “junk mail” and action steps to help achieve their goals.
The day carried on with a Plenary Panel discussion on “Breaking Boundaries” featuring five panelists from influential engineering and tech organizations – all who have blazed a trail within engineering and broken a few boundaries during their careers.
Attendees visited lightening sessions and educational workshops that touched on everything from leadership development to gender biases at work. A speed mentoring workshop in the afternoon resulted in new connections.
WE Local India continues through the weekend with more plenary panels, lightening talks, workshops and keynote speakers, as well as a Career Fair that is free and open to the public on Saturday, 13 April. Top engineering and technology organizations will be onsite at the career fair recruiting job candidates.
