Last week saw the celebration of International Women´s Day on March 8th. Role of women today than ever before is being celebrated and encouraged all the more across society, across geographies, across economies. The world is perceiving the benefits in gender diversity and rightly so. Incidentally this issue of Lexspeak is an “all-woman production” including the guest article on Chart of Accounts, in our Entrepreneur´s World series.
As Diane Mariechild said “A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform” and she does it all the time. What better example than our ´Mother Earth´ !
This issue is a ´light-read´ while the next one promises to be a loaded one with the Union Budget round the corner.
