Today was the D-day at Jaipur Women Blog, because today we’ve launched our campaign ‘Business Lullabies’. As you know by now, this campaign has a motive to support working mothers.
Women after maternity leave are denied the right to work part-time, or flexible hours that could enable them to give more efficient baby-care. Others are shoehorned into more junior posts, or return to virtually no job description at all, while others are simply dismissed. Pay rises and promotions are also harder to come by for those that do go back.
Along with Sheroes and Delhi Public School, Jaipur, we decided to break this narrow perception with the help of 5 small kids. These tots were supposed to give a live formal presentation at a corporate house talking about how MNCs all over India can support the working mothers. We thank Jaipur Office of Skoda, Saga Automotive, for letting ‘Business Lullabies’ happen in their boardroom.
With attendance of SKODA Saga employees representing various departments, our tiny-tots braced themselves. How?
While some practiced the heavy business-terms diligently,
Others just got teaser photos clicked to check if they were looking good and representative enough.
Of course, the pressure was high on the little ‘Professionals’. To relax, the mother’s lap seemed to be the best option.
…or for that matter, having fun time with her…
…or showing mimicry skills to her.
We, whole-heartedly, thank the faculty of DPS who worked day and night alongside the kids to make them understand and learn the way they had to advocate millions of working mothers.
JWB’s Priyanka Saini too showed tremendous patience with the toddlers.
Wondering what the little ones said that made all the SKODA employees in the boardroom agree with them?
Well, they must have said wise words because they got joy rides in the stylish SKODA cars afterwards!
