In a recent interview with Tweak India, Vidya Balan, an actor in Hindi films, and Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals at Prime Video, spoke about women supporting each other in the workplace. 

They were a part of OWomaniya!, a reportage analysing gender diversity in Indian entertainment. The two encouraged women to be there for one another. Here are a few tips they shared on how women can support each other and build a better work environment.

Balan and Purohit agreed that women must be available for each other in any way they can. The actor even shared her experience while working with other actors for Mission Mangal. 

She said her experience was phenomenal because all women were trying to be supportive of each other in any way they could. They even ganged up on actor Akshay Kumar who was the only male lead in the story.

Build Friendship

The workplace is a professional environment but can be made better with friends. We spend the better part of our days working together, so why not make friends with our female colleagues?

Not only does it build a support system but also makes working fun. Purohit shared that her team of women finds humour in everything. It could be one of the ways of overcoming dull days at work.

Hear One Another

Balan and Purohit agreed that women in the workplace must be open to hearing new ideas from other women. In a light tone they pointed out that in a world of men, women are hardly heard. One must be unapologetic about having a voice.

However, as a woman, one must give opportunities to other women to speak her ideas and lay her thoughts out in the open. It is one way to show support and push each other up the success ladder.

Women Must Talk About Money

Purohit said that women in the workplace must talk about money and aspirations. Agreeing with her statement, Balan jokingly said, “I love money. Money is power.”

While they laughed about it, it is one of the best pieces of advice for women. Talking about money and investment pushes others to take control of their finances. It would not happen at once but could be a small step in the right direction.

Celebrate Accomplishments

Women must celebrate each other’s accomplishments. Everybody is competitive in the workplace, however, it does not need to be petty and unhealthy.

Competition between two co-workers can be healthy. The success of one does not undermine the accomplishments and talents of the other. Therefore, women should go ahead and celebrate the success of their fellow employees.
