Seetha Chinnappa-Sarwal, Partner at X-PM India - International Women's Day 2022
What’s your current role?
I am a Partner with a WIL Group member company called X-PM based between India and the UK and we solve challenges for companies using interim talent - managerial bandwidth on demand. I am also associated with Trustees Unlimited/Step on Board and Hardskills, helping to develop corporate partnerships with companies seeking to deepen the way they develop their in-house talent with specialist skills training.
What does this year's theme of International Women's Day #BreakTheBias, mean to you?
For me, breaking the bias means being unafraid to talk about women's issues such as menopause and caring responsibilities for example and to advocate for women's voices to be expressed, in boardrooms, on panels, in Film and TV programming, in fiction - everywhere. Listening to women can only lead to more ideas and more empathy and more connection in the world.
