Many aspiring leaders from HCL Technologies who joined the session found it relevant and enthralling, with it centering around striking a balance between people and technology.

The panelists discussed their career journeys, and the challenges women encounter in male-dominated industries. They also deliberated on the impact disruption has had on women’s careers.

A sense of purpose and achievement 

"People's perspectives on what they want from their careers have changed," explained Uma Sivasubramani. 

"It is no longer enough to show them career growth or the chance to work on the latest technologies. Today, people want a sense of purpose and achievement - not just a total rewards package! People today seek out companies that provide employees with opportunities to contribute to society through their impactful work in technology."
