"When my organisation enrolled me into the “Can I Have it All” program with Wocademy, I was very apprehensive but I am pleasantly surprised how it has helped me. In just a few weeks, I was able to come back to full time work from a half day and simultaneously started to manage both home and work with a little more ease. I also realised that it is ok to not do everything perfectly and that I am allowed imperfections. The confidence session helped me overcome my fears and hesitations and push myself to raise the bar. Even though it was difficult for me to accept, the sessions were an eye opener for me to recognise what I needed.” – Nidhi Aggarwal, Senior Tech Lead with 9+ years experience at a Tech outsourcing MNC.
