Empowered Women: Naheed Chowdhry Speaking about Speaking Up

Happy Women’s Day to all empowered women and the ones aspiring to be one!

Ever thought, why do so many of us find it hard to speak up? And what can we do to make our voices heard without being perceived wrongly?

The first episode of “Empowered Women Empower Women,” is with Naheed Chowdhry, the founder of iWill. With a focus on gender equality in the workplace, iWill helps augment, not reinvent, the gender-disparity policies of global leaders.

Naheed emphasizes that the best way to shift the mindsets of others is a mix of data and empathy. It’s only when something becomes personal that you can feel the impact and the desire to change your unconscious behavior. She also points to the benefits of safe spaces, where you can open up and discuss experiences without being judged.

When you have an idea, it’s important to have your voice heard. Communication is the one tool that can enable the creation of so many bridges. So talk with facts. Try to remove the opinion. If someone’s questioning what you’re saying, use data and ask for examples from them.

Celebrate this Women’s Day with listening to Naheed’s effective framework for communication and sharing that gift with women you want to empower!
