Quote from Alisha Moopen – Deputy Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare on International Women’s Day 2023
“Today’s women are tomorrow’s economic and social powerhouse. If their potential is not recognized and enabled today, any organization or country in the world will be at the risk of being left behind in the race for progress. Women today are aware and actively seek out opportunities beyond the household, they are more focused on pursuing higher education, a career and fulfil their potential alongside their male counterparts. Currently the proportion of women with a college degree is nearly 40% as compared to men which stands at 32%. As Mauro F. Guillen has rightly mentioned in his book 2030, late marriages, limited number of children and longer life-span, are factors which are enabling women to contribute more and for longer to the economy and society. As they live longer, they are more likely to invest on healthcare, lifestyle and education, for themselves and for their families.
Considering all the above factors, this year’s International Women’s Day 2023 theme – Embrace Equity, is an important steppingstone to ensure that countries and organisations around the world relook at the ways in which they are leveraging the potential of women, recognise their long-term value and create a level playing field. Proud to say that at Aster, with almost 60% women in our workforce, we are determined to enable this potential for the betterment of the organisation and the society.”
