Does motherhood spell the end of a woman's career? At the KSP Awards 2016, Mansi Zaveri got an opportunity to talk to Somasree Bose- Godrej, Deepali Naair- IIFL Wealth , Preeta Sukhtankar- The Label Life and Anjana Shashidharan- Sequoia Capital -- four working moms about their journey achievements, sacrifices and whether it really is tough to have a career and manage a baby. What they think might really surprise you!
The unanimous consensus from everyone on the panel was the need for a work-life balance and that all working moms should do away with the guilt factor. Somasree Bose echoed a lot of our views when she said that baby time and spouse time need to be separate; Anjana Shashidharan feels that you should not feel bad about asking for help - everyone needs it and it's nothing to be ashamed about it; Preeta Sukhtankar feels that women are as shrewd as men when it comes to negotiations and Deepali Naair believes that life is about what you prioritize for yourself.
