This International Women’s Day, Let’s Decode Our MEHs!
WISEN Newsletter: Issue 6
“I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life.”
— Maya Angelou
|Wish you a very Happy International Women’s Day. |
The theme for this year’s Women’s Day reads “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, recognising the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all. Many of us in WISEN are pioneers in doing this and what better reason do we need to celebrate it every day? The best way to celebrate international women’s day is to care about our wellness, especially as we go through the ups & downs of changing the world. As part of our continuous effort in bringing interesting topics to the forum, this month we have an expert helping us decode our Meh days or rather moments. Bhairavi Prakash, Founder of Mithra Trust assures us that we can overcome our MEHs! Join us for a conversation this Women’s Day 2022 on the WISEN Insta page.
Wish you a great month ahead!
