Ritu Sharma’s vision for future is that of woman leadership. She has personally taken this responsibility on herself and is running projects to create women leaders in their respective fields. She emphasises that most attractive feature of woman leadership is that women predominantly focus and work from a ’philanthropist’ space and believe in greater good for all. They believe in giving back and creating a balance- in career and personal interests. The future lies in the hands of women leadership as they would beautifully integrate future visions where business successes, personal success, family success and community success are all interwoven and mutually reinforcing.
During the testing times of Covid-19 pandemic situation and lockdown,
Ms. Sharma continued her efforts to keep people on a high vibration. Under her leadership, her organisation continued to deliver regular online workshops and sessions to enhance good mental health and opportunities for personal and professional development. The organisation has worked tirelessly, in association with other voluntary organisations and professional bodies, to support those in need. It has been realised that loneliness and rise in domestic abuse have been two areas of great concern. Kaushalya UK tackled the first one with great finesse while also working on streamlining strategies on supporting DV victims.
Ritu believes that Covid-19 came at a time where humanity needed a nudge to their consciousness and the whole year has made it clear for many that our priorities must be that of peace, care and environmental preservation. The vaccine brings great hope to us while we head towards 2021, a year where we get to execute all our new learnings and realisations. The vaccine has started relieving people of the fear of the virus and we hope that we can eradicate this imprisonment by accepting the vaccine and making sensible choices in future.
