ZS's Capability and Expertise Center celebrated inspirational women

Our Pune and New Delhi offices, which collectively comprise ZS’s Capability and Expertise Center, celebrated International Women’s Day by participating in a handful of March 8 activities organized by the Women’s Leadership Initiative.

In Pune, ZSers wore purple in support of justice and dignity for women, and gathered to watch Anne-Marie Slaughter’s popular TED Talk. In Can we all “have it all”?, Slaughter explains why shifts in work culture, public policy and social mores have the power to create equality for both men and women. Following the video, women ZSers shared personal stories about how they are “bold for change”, the 2017 International Women’s Day theme.

Bay Area ZSers love to treat each other right

Bay Area ZSers recently took advantage of not one but two occasions to spread a little love and treat each other right, one of the three core values we live by.

In what has become an annual San Francisco tradition, ZSers used February 14 as an opportunity to thank one another for their hard work. This year, over 1,400 “Valentine’s grams” filled with candy and personalized notes circulated both our Bay Area locations!

On March 8, the office also celebrated International Women's Day by partnering with the ZS Women's Leadership Initiative (WLI). The office donated over 200 books to Room to Read, an organization that helps bring education to the next generation of female leaders.
