Venue: Courtyard by Marriott, Gurugram

The Genpact Centre for Women’s Leadership (GCWL) is facilitating the Breakthrough training programme for women aspiring to rebuild and strengthen their careers post maternity. Phase 2 of the training is scheduled for October 5th & 6th, 2018. For Returning Mothers, this phase of training focuses on learning the tools & mastering the techniques that will get them hired. For Working Mothers, the focal point for Phase 2 is coaching and mentoring for career progression.

Phase 1 of the training, wrapped up in August & September 2018, trained Returning & Working Mothers to develop career goals and delineate action plans to reach leadership positions after their maternity break.

The training follows through from the research findings of GCWL’s qualitative study on lived experiences of maternity and career among women and their return to workforce across sectors. The findings were presented in the report, Predicament of Returning Mothers,” launched April 25, 2018.  

The insights in the study were arrived at through an investigation of the complex network of individual, family, social, and workplace factors that force women to leave the workforce post pregnancy and childbirth. The study also assessed initiatives taken both by the government and corporates at several levels from mentorship to maternity management programmes.  The study offered a comprehensive overview of the challenges by including perspectives from employers from across three sectors.
