Making her fashion magazine cover debut by featuring on the cover of a leading magazine, Reliance heiress and Mukesh Ambani‘s daughter, Isha Ambani Piramal, finally spilled more information than the fans could chew. Talking about her fairytale wedding with beau Anand Piramal, her upcoming business plans and what legacy she intends to leave behind, Isha revealed who stood at the core of her foundation, shaping her up and we are not surprised.
Coming from a family of overachievers, Isha shared how seeing her mother at the forefront of several businesses, ranging from sports and education to healthcare, has shaped up her attitude towards women at the workplace. “As much as I want to believe that women can have it all, I know that my mom gave it all up to raise us. But once we grew up, I also saw her balance work and home perfectly. Watching her play all these different roles—from full-time mom to businesswoman—I learnt how important each facet is in a woman’s life and how one needs to define what “having it all” means during these different stages,” Isha spilled while talking to Vogue India.
Taking her mother’s teachings and set examples forward in her business arena, she said, “I feel very passionately about gender equality and equal participation in the work force because growing up I was made to believe that I could do whatever my brothers could do, as well if not better. So as a working woman, I believe that companies must create an environment that fosters equal participation.”
About instilling the same in her company, she added, “At Jio, we have programmes for women that allow them to form communities and support each other. But what would really give me satisfaction is when I know that no matter which meeting I enter, engineering or design, there will be an equal number of women in the room.”
Isha married Anand at her Ambani residence, Antilia, on December 12 amidst lavish festivities.
