Today's working woman has to handle multiple complex challenges. While building a successful career skillfully at the workplace, she is also expected to run the home and manage stakeholders adroitly at both fronts. In trying to balance these twin worlds, she sometimes loses out on her chance to become a leader at work. Since she has to consistently balance both, she never usually gets to evolve from her managerial role to a more empowering leadership position. Management education has come a long way in initiating methods and manners of conducting business including understanding and improving human behavior in that respect. Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIM-C) encourages research in the holistic development of business management. The newly introduced programme on Women in Leadership is a watershed moment in business education.

This programme, with its robust framework, marks an important step in helping them transform into successful leaders."

The Women Leadership programme covers the following, both at theoretical and practical levels: (a) Transitioning to leadership from managerial positions (b) Developing women specific techniques for decision-making processes in organizations (c) Communicating effectively as a leader (d) Helping participants understand the need for gender diversity (e) Building participants' leadership potential (f) Giving a legal perspective to working women in India Specially conceptualized modules The Women Leadership programme is spread over 11 months through on-line and face-to-face interactive sessions, with 10 different modules as briefly follow: 1. WOMEN IN MANAGEMENT is all about woman and work-life-balance, labour and gender discourse. 2. BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF ORGANISATIONAL FUNCTIONING is a snapshot view of marketing, operations, finance, and systems - the basic pillars of any management training activity. 3.

As a part of the BRICS, there is a need to be aware of what makes circumstances more challenging yet accessible to women labour force.
