Women make great leaders as they are natural multitaskers, says HRD Minister

Leadership Instincts

Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ felicitated women employees working in the Ministry of HRD at an International Women’s Day Celebration programme in New Delhi yesterday. He expressed his gratitude to the women officers and other women employees and appreciated them for their hard work and contribution to the education sector. Speaking on the occasion, Pokhriyal said that women make great leaders as they are natural multitaskers. The potential and abilities of women are undeniable. They can balance both professional and personal life skills in an exceptional manner. He said that a woman has always been portrayed as power and goddess. Our sages believed that where the woman is worshiped and gets due respect, the deity resides there. Underlining the important role of women for nation-building and development, Swami Vivekananda has said that a country which does not have respect for women, can never progress.

The HRD Minister has said that the Government has taken several game-changing initiatives since 2014 for the education of the girl child. This is one of the reasons for the success of the scheme of Beti Bachao Beti Padhao whereby the Gross Enrolment Ratio of girls across all levels of education is now higher than boys. He hoped that the girls/women will outshine boys in all fields.
