About sexism in the finance sector, she said that there is no overt sexism but when tasked with a challenge, she needed to prove that she was able to meet it.

Seema Chaturvedi is working with TiE to bring together an initiative to mentor women in their entrepreneurial journeys

Now, she is working with TiE to bring together an initiative to mentor women in their entrepreneurial journeys. The programme, All Indian Roadshow of Economic Empowerment of Women, has received funding to promote entrepreneurship as a career option for young women in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. The outcome of this initiative as she says is to “encourage women to start scalable and sustainable businesses so that they can then become mentors themselves, so it is kind of a trickledown and a multiplier effect”.
