Women’s leadership strengthens society
Anas Rehman Junaid, MD and Principal Researcher, Hurun India said, “Women-led wealth creation directly leads to improved employment for women, their families and society at large. If women, who represent 50% of India’s population, join the labor force or wealth creation, it breaks social bonds. And so, the wealth creation stories of women entrepreneurs and professionals imbue us with passion and inspiration for a more inclusive tomorrow, which we strive to achieve with the Kotak Private Banking Hurun Leading Wealth Women List 2021.”
