68. Simran Kaur: The Fearless Career
Show Notes

My guest today is the very fearless Simran Kaur.

Simran has had a fabulous career building and leading product development in Health tech and across corporates and startups in Germany, Singapore and the UAE and taught as guest faculty at prestigious universities.

In this revealing episode, Simran shares how an ambitious girl from India went to Germany to pursue engineering, got hired by Siemens and even got mentored by a senior group level CEO. We also talk about how she started Power Women, a successful platform that has attracted top notch female leaders from all sectors. 

Read the following excerpt:

"When I started out my professional life, I did not think about the ceiling, the pay gap, or topics such as diversity and inclusion. I came into the workforce believing that the playing field was level. I became mindful of many of these topics as my career progressed. As many other women, I too experienced being excluded, and realized that my journey had hurdles, which as a young ambitious girl I had never imagined. Over time I realised we needed to build the right networks and a support system to overcome these challenges, get stronger and keep on rising. And Power Women was born! There are so many powerful women are doing amazing work and their stories need to be told. We want to not only bring these women leaders into the C-Suites, Boardrooms and make them have multi-billion dollar exits but we also want to inspire the next generation of women."

Simran has been featured as one of GCC’s 50 Women Leaders, has an MBA from INSEAD and speaks 6 languages!
