Our Vision

While the world is discussing the ‘barriers’ for women to become leaders and debating the best approach to achieve gender balance, women at the workplace are fighting the everyday realities owing to their gender.

Things become challenging as these young high-potential women are looking to grow upwards since expectations from both their career as well as their personal life (family, kids etc) increase around the same time. While they really want to making it all happen and find the strength to push through challenges, it can get overwhelming. This is where most women either give up on their career dreams or get stuck.

No wonder, statistics (WEF Gender Gap Report 2018) reveal that it may take another 200 years to close the gender gap!!

Our vision is to bridge the gender gap by helping women rise as leaders in the workplace. 

We help high-potential women adopt the right strategies, mindset, tools, and skills required to fast-track their success. We also also help organizations retain and develop their female talent, through specialised leadership development programs, training, and executive coaching.

Our Values:

At Think Stride, it is about helping our clients to get results by demonstrating standards of excellence and inspiring them to live up to their potential.

  • Focus on results
