A recent study by Kelly Global Work force Insights services has found a shocking truth.
Something which you and me already know .But is rarely openly discussed.
It’s seen that women in STEM that is science ,technology,engineering and mathematics jobs are leaving their high-profile careers at its peak.
There’s a serious lack of women in middle and higher up corporate positions.
Interestingly 46% of undergraduates in STEM branches are females.Few are visible higher up in the corporate ladder.
41% Women in STEM industries leave job after 10 years of service.
- Gender inequality in Pay.
- Discrimination in promotion and benefits during child-bearing years.
- Hostility towards women who want to balance both home and career.
Today I am sharing the story of one brilliant mom who gave up her corporate career for motherhood.
But didn’t stop planning a biz.
Introducing Mrs Nilanjana Guhathakurta an engineer ,a mommy and now a biz owner.
Nilanjana’s journey in her own words
I am Bachelor of Engineer ( Computer Science ) & PGDBM (HR ) .I was associated with corporate jobs for almost 8-9 years but was stressed and dissatisfied apart from pay package.
Then my daughter came into our lives and things changed (being pregnant is not encouraged in a corporate setup ) .
I took a break from work as things turned worse at work front. The bosses came to know about my promotion at personal level.
Life has been great ,bringing up my little bundle of joy.
As my daughter has started going to play school ,now I have got some spare time.
The feeling to do something with flexible timing ,cropped up in my mind.

Through a Facebook ad I learnt about Cue math .I applied.
After going through my resume , instantly they called up and we discussed in details about this programme.
Life has changed again.
This time I am a mompreneur, with my own biz.
I call the shots, about when I work ,how long I work.
About Cue Math
The curriculum comes in 3 sections.
- School maths
- Mental aptitude (Tab based)
- Creative reasoning (puzzle cards)
It is founded by an IIT-ian.
Why I wanted to be a part of Cue Math?
3 Reasons why I loved the Cue Math concept.
1)I like working with children.
2)Math is a favourite subject.
3)Cue Math has a fantastic learning programme.
Most students in our education system have a fear in maths as subject but it is not the fault of the student or not related to his IQ.
Every child has the ability to do well in maths it depends how he is taught or how his WHYs are answered .The child needs to have a clear concept .
This will make him/her capable of applying it in practical problems.
This program will teach every child to think strategically, be creative and love maths.
What’s the fee structure ?
It’s an easy payment option.
The fee structure is Rs 1600 for 3 classes per week
Duration of class is of an hour.
Students of any board from UKG to class 8 can avail this programme.
Through this opportunity I am re-learning mathematics in a newway.Sharing it with the kid makes me happy.It is making me independent by working from home itself.
Also getting to meet so many people and knowing their life story.
What do you think of Moms in business?
Don’t all babies deserve to be close to their mothers ?
What about corporate social responsibility?
Do the men in biz remember their mother’s?
