At UPES, we strive to cultivate an inclusive, gender-diverse environment that fosters the development and growth of women leaders.
Through the Shakti program, we aim to help women realise their potential, focus on their growth, and contribute to the nation. An intensive selection process handpicks a batch of 30 women employees and enrolls them in the meticulously designed 9-month program focusing on adaptive skills, emotional intelligence, business communication, and team management.
There are 5 modules to the program which are assisted by courses from Coursera and classroom sessions.
Who Am I
Creating personalized development plans through the Hogan Assessment.
Leadership For Women
Elucidating the potential of women leaders and their need today.
Developing emotional intelligence to embody the leadership spirit, face challenges, and curb beliefs that limit a woman’s growth.
Inculcating the principles of situational leadership, team management, and peer-to-peer communication.
The World Around Me
Personality development, business communication, and building personal brand are taught in the final module.
“Program Shakti was surprisingly a journey inward instead of outward or upward the career ladder. It reminded us that the true power lies within, not outside. With each passing module of Shakti, over a period of nine months, we were gently peeling our personalities layer by layer to discover our true empowered selves.”
“It’s a one-of-a-kind program that has been meticulously conceptualized and passionately delivered. It has been a journey of transformation in more ways than one. I strongly believe that this enlightenment would go a long way in defining my perspective as an individual – on how to handle people and situations. I am truly indebted for those great times!
“My journey at Shakti was a roller-coaster with all kind of emotions. Getting connected with this super powerful women group itself was a blessing. The modules covered were rich in content, and the ideas and themes unleashed the best in me. The program helped me identify my strengths.”
“Shakti has been a nine-month-long experience of sharing, learning, unlearning, introspecting and re-learning. It has changed the way I look at things and perceive them now. It has changed my thought process completely and made me a much stronger person.”
“The nine-month journey of Shakti has been quite phenomenal. Every module of the program opened up new realms of understanding self. The whole experience has put me on a challenging path of self-exploration everyday which helps me be mindful of how I lead, follow or execute. And, with this, I believe that the journey to a better self has begun – both in professional and personal space.”
