Embassy Office Parks hosted its annual event to celebrate International Women’s Day at Hilton, Embassy Golf Links today. Embassy Group has always taken pride in celebrating women leadership by setting remarkable benchmarks in diverse fields owing to their talents, capabilities, and integrity. Manisha Koirala, three-time Filmfare Award-winning actor, UNPF Goodwill Ambassador and an advocate of Cancer Awareness, was invited as the Chief Guest for the event.
Embassy Office Parks instituted the celebration of International Women’s Day in 2016, for all its corporate occupiers and park users with the notion of inviting women leaders to share their stories of overcoming adversities and emerging out triumphant. In the 4th Edition of the International Women’s Day event under the theme ‘Leading Ladies 2019 – In Conversation with The Leaders of Change’, Manisha Koirala along with other eminent guests including Meenalochani Kumar, Senior Director – Global Leadership Development Programs, Sutherland Global and Aruna Newton, Global Head – Diversity & Inclusion, Infosys shared thoughtful insights on the necessity of emerging alive and victorious despite the hardships.
Manisha Koirala, while addressing the younger generation said, “Being here on Women’s Day among so many corporates at Embassy Office Parks is a great pleasure. I think women are taking responsibility of themselves to be who they are, as times are changing and it is empowering to see women contributing in different fields today. Women who make the choice to be home makers and take care of their families are equally noteworthy and on par with professional women.”
Speaking emotionally on her struggle with cancer and her book ‘Healed’, she said, “Recovering from cancer gave her a new lease in life and that she now embraces life with open arms. Life is a gift and this was her reflection during her time of recovery. Being brave is not really an option, when you are faced with a life threatening disease, you just have to.”
Speaking on the occasion, Mike Holland, Chief Executive Office, Embassy Office Park, said, “At Embassy, we have always encouraged empowerment of women and have celebrate their leadership. We applaud their effort and talent and the power to shine on in spite of the adversities they face and setting remarkable benchmark in diverse fields.
