The CFI SheLeads program

A special edition of our flagship program

The CFI SheLeads program was designed in 2019 with the objective of helping women stay in the game and realize their leadership potential.

However, much has changed in the world since then.While the global pandemic has posed severe challenges for everyone, it has been particularly difficult for women across all socio-economic strata.

Be it staying employed, or balancing work with a manifold increase in domestic demands, or coping with hostilities all around, the situation has been significantly more stressful and difficult for women than men as proved by several research studies, formal and informal.

This edition of SheLeads from CFI is in recognition of this urgent need and our response to address the same.


The entire program will be spread over a duration of four months.
