QUIET VALUE WOMAN
NETWORK | SHARE | MOTIVATE
A community of strong women sharing, learning and exchanging expertise.
Sign up and browse, catch a read, share and comment. Post something if you feel like, we'd love to hear your voice!! Find others like you, learn from them, grow with them.
It does not take a village to make a successful woman... it takes a community of strong women!
your voice counts
Make your opinions matter. Women have things to say but refrain from voicing it, most say they don't have anything to say- truth be far from it!
You have a say, we have the space- Make the most of it!
(You can say it anonymously too...)
Quiet Value Woman is a collective. A passion project that turned into something so much bigger, this portal for women is both personal to founder Aparna Saligrama and an ambitious venture to create a safe space for women to be themselves- the intelligent creatures they are!
Here's wishing for a very Happy New Year
Anything new has a special aura around it. It cld be a new dress, new book or a new vaccine. The moment it is new, it invokes interest, draws attention. Language, culture, region none of them are barriers- from a new recipe to pathbreaking lifesaving research, a new one commands attention. New things also bring in suspicion, worry of the unknown and imaginary demons. As humans, we are known to embrace change, albeit some slower than others, and we find new ways, new paths to forge ahead.
And as a faithful reminder to us, comes the New Year. Every year, like clockwork!! Just like that, we are given a chance to slow down, rejuvenate, rethink, and start over. Ok, maybe not start over, but realign. Recharge our batteries and prepare with hope for a wonderful year ahead, with seasons and festivals and landmarks in our own families and careers to look forward to.
2020 has been trying. Very trying. I am personally very happy that I chose this year to launch Quiet Value Woman. I needed something positive to channel my helplessness at everything that was happening. And I am so glad, so pleased with the way you have all responded, my fellow QV Women. From just signing up to show support, to embracing the platform with enthusiasm to post, share and comment, it has given new meaning to the phrase – women helping women.
I take this opportunity as founder of QV Woman to thank every one of you who signed up and participate. I am also thankful to all those of you who are not members yet send us links and articles you think are of relevance. 2021 holds a lot of promise for Quiet Value Woman. And I want to share it with all of you, because you are all an intrinsic part of making this happen.
Thank you for showing support.
Have a happy and safe new year.
See you all soon,
A Forum full of options, opportunities and fun stuff!

You asked, we heard....
Most of us have been using the virtual world to continue with our work lives. And many are seeing the benefit of doing things online, and a lot of these things will stay with us.
We received not one or two but a few queries on how best to manage online working, how to 'build your brand' working online. Check out the Career section of our Resources and also our innovation consulting wing for more on how to manage the virtual world.
The latest from our blog...
Our QV Woman Blog is our most popular piece. Maybe it is the personal touch or maybe it is the topics....hmmm.. in any case, we love our blog as do our members (and non-members, as we have found out!). No login is required to access it, so more reason to bookmark it!
OUR GUEST BLOG IS LIVE!
We are very excited to have guest bloggers on our site now!! The women (and people from other genders as we go on) we invite are all professionals in their own right, adding insight, giving us a glimpse into their minds and take on issues.
The blogs are invite-only and our bloggers are thoroughly vetted, so if you are interested in reaching greater audiences, please get in touch with us. We have the platform, you do the writing.
Thank you Shalini Ramachandra, our guest blogger this time round.
In our second guest blog, IT specialist Shalini Ramachandra writes about the work-life balance myth. She asks, if that what it actually means is we cannot have it all? And what does it really take for us women to support one another as we navigate life, and work, and....isn't it time we stopped judging each other and start supporting one another, she asks.
As someone dancing the work-life balance dance for nearly 2 decades now, we thank Shalini for her candid piece!
