We recently hosted a seminar on the topic of "coping with stress and anxiety" to spread more awareness about mental health. The session was conducted in collaboration with Silver Oak Health and moderated by Sweta Narayanan and Neha Dey. Mental health awareness is a critical aspect of fostering a compassionate and supportive society. It involves promoting understanding, empathy, and open conversations about mental health issues to reduce stigma and encourage individuals to seek help without fear of judgment. By raising awareness, we can dismantle misconceptions surrounding mental health, highlight the prevalence of various conditions, and underscore the importance of early intervention and access to appropriate resources.

Overcoming historical barriers, women in leadership bring a unique perspective, resilience, and adept communication skills to boardrooms and executive suites. As trailblazers, they inspire future generations and contribute to diverse, inclusive decision-making processes. The panel discussion touched upon various crucial aspects, including diversity, inclusion, gender stereotypes, biases, and networking. The panelists shared valuable insights and diverse perspectives that made for an excellent discussion.
