[A quote from the finalist herself]

“It’s such an honour to be recognized and chosen as a finalist in 3 award categories at WomenTech Global 2022 among thousands of well-accomplished ladies from 170+ countries. I’m truly grateful to my family and loved ones for being my pillars of strength through these years, especially my parents for showing me the wonders and value of mentorship and sharing knowledge regardless of which field you are in. They’ve always been willing and eager to find ways to learn and impart knowledge to others, and I think it runs in the family.

It goes without saying that my previous employers, colleagues and friends played a big role to help me shape up to run and contribute to these programs. Too many to name here, but I’m sure they know who they are.” says Nadini while joining with us after her recent move to Toronto, Canada.
