International Women’s Day is always a grand celebration at Perficient GDC Nagpur and Pune. Like every year, Perficient GDC Nagpur and Pune and Women-in-Tech India ERG celebrated our incredible women who light up our workplace with their brilliance and grace. The day was filled with appreciation, empowerment, and, of course, plenty of fun.

March 8th, International Women’s Day, serves as a moment to reflect on the challenges and resilience of women globally and acknowledge the numerous triumphs we women have achieved.

The theme for International Women’s Day this year is Inspire Inclusion. It symbolizes the inclusion of women in not only opportunities but also roles and considerations. The event was also marked by women wearing shades of purple and men dressed in white, adding to the vibrant celebration of diversity and inclusion.

Continuing our cherished tradition, the day began with a heartfelt gesture that resonates with the spirit of honoring strength and grace. Anurag Shivhare, General Manager – GDC Nagpur & Pune, took the time to visit each desk personally, presenting individually signed cards and flowers to our women colleagues. Likewise at Pune, allies felicitated all women colleagues by presenting the cards and flowers.

Acknowledging our Women and Allies

On March 8th, 2022, we proudly launched the Women-in-Tech (WiT) India ERG. This year marks the second anniversary of WiT India ERG, adding an extra layer of significance to our Women’s Day celebration. We started the festivities by taking a stroll down memory lane, reminiscing about the WiT events from 2023-2024. It was a moment to recognize the colleagues who contributed to these events. Neha Pasi, a dedicated WiT member, eloquently highlighted the past year’s events. Following this, we honored our colleagues with WiT’s “Proud Supporter” badge for being key contributors to various events organized by WiT India in the past year.

Empower Her: Nurturing Health and Wellness

It was time for an enlightening session on health awareness for women - Empower Her: Nurturing Health and Wellness. We had renowned Obstetrician and Gynecologist Dr. Rashmi Shinde as our guest speaker to deliver this informative session.

Dr. Rashmi’s session on women’s health covered vital insights, including lifestyle management, nutrition, reproductive health, and major cancers. Attendees learned about early symptoms, precautions, and recommended screening tests for breast, cervical, endometrial, ovarian, and thyroid cancers. The informative session, with a diverse turnout of colleagues, aimed to break stereotypes around women’s health. After the session, an extensive Q&A session addressed colleagues’ important queries about women’s health.
