The program has a humongous aim to empower the community and women. The Fellowship is acing in its perspective and working as per micro to macro principle. It stands out for me because nowhere else any Fellow is groomed as an important individual belonging to a particular group or in general..
The activities like 1:1 with mentors and fellows really helped me to build a network, listen to so many struggles and success stories. Getting connected with like-minded people really helped me to weave my story.
The founder, the team, the fellows, and the mentors, all had one thing in common. They all communicated really well with each other. There was no gap at any point. As a fellow, my network widened really fast. I connected with the best women across the country. I cannot think of making these connections at one place in any other setting.
