Without a doubt this has become a career highlight for me, inspired by a conversation between Carey DeBoer from Totally Workwear and Radmilla Desic, Queensland President for NAWIC. The suggestion was put to me and I thought it was fantastic but extremely ambitious, let’s face it, to cover all vocations and trades, women may be few and far between.

Gender equality: an economic necessity | Pakistan Today | Latest news, Breaking news, Pakistan News, World news, business, sport and multimedia | Gender-Balanced Leadership | Scoop.it

Social scientists are unanimous that implementation of gender equality has the potential and dynamics to double the GDP from four to eight per cent that is no less achievement in the current global scenario. For that matter, all you have to do is change the centuries old social misperceptions ingrained in the society. It is an undeniable fact that women in Pakistan remain at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder.
