By women, for women: Here’s what you can expect from the Mother-Verse track at TechSparks 2022
TechSparks 2022, YourStory’s flagship and India’s largest startup-tech event is now offline, bringing to you some of the biggest names from the startup and tech industries. With 10 main sector tracks and over 15 special focus tracks, there is something for everyone at TechSparks 2022 this weekend.
One such track is Mother-Verse – a shared learning space for working mothers, by working mothers.
Mompreneurs and mothers working in any capacity are always subjected to the sexist stigma that deems it impossible for them to be acing motherhood, familial responsibilities and entrepreneurship together. They are often asked to choose or compromise between these supposedly distinct roles, which is not just an archaic concept but is also demeaning and disrespectful.
“Why choose at all?” ask many women leaders and working mothers, who are breaking the mould and living their unapologetic best lives navigating (and thriving in) these roles.
Follow the Mother-Verse track on Day 3 of TechSparks 2022 to learn how they do it and how you can too.
Here are key sessions you’ll want to follow:
