An insightful session on #BreakingtheBias with Hira Ali – Author of #HerWayToTheTop #HerAllies | Writer | Speaker | Coach | Women & Ethnic Leadership | Allyship | by KSBL
KSBL recently invited Hira Ali (Author, Coach, and Internationally acclaimed Women Development Activist) for a discourse around gender and diversity titled #BreakTheBias.
At the event, Zubina Sadick (Head of Executive Education, KSBL) shared how it’s important to create awareness in the youth through sessions and group discussions, and activities that instill empathy.
Drawing from her research authoring books on the subject, Hira gave tips to the audience, especially men on how they can make small mindset changes in their everyday life to contribute to the agenda of gender equality and diversity. She also advised women to overcome imposter syndrome and be confident about their competencies and shared the importance of having ‘allies’ acting as advocates on the subject.
The session was attended by professionals and students from all backgrounds. Also, present at the event to support the topic was Zafar Aziz Osmani, CEO of Excelerate. The event concluded with an interactive Q&A round and networking. This was the first in a series of events planned to support International Women’s Day 2022.
