Supriya Ranga introduces the world to her new business
As a female event manager and wedding planner in India, I have encountered my fair share of discrimination. This came mostly in the form of micro-aggressions such as menacing bosses, arrogant co-workers, and rude, uncalled for comments from almost everyone I came across. But I was determined to triumph through this. I stayed quiet, for a long time. Watching and learning everything in the background. I gathered as much knowledge as I could, and then, after ignoring every terrible thing I heard, I realized that my experience was not unique. My company didn’t want me to flourish, they wanted to keep me exactly where I was. That’s not to say my company wanted to keep everyone down, or even every woman down- the problem was absence of respect for each other.
