Consultant for Policy Initiatives on Council for Girls and Women
International Girls Leadership Summit
Dilshad Dayani the founder of WWGC recently launched her book on culture, conformity, success and women. A paradox paradigm that opens dialogue and discussion as to why we should be questioning our culture, values, norms and traditions amongst globalization of economies, values and lifestyles. This book was the underlying theme of the Honored Panel Discussion at the UN ” Confronting Success within Cultures” with notable women change makers. The thought provoking discussion brought conformity and compliance into perspective taking account of our everyday lives and our struggles!

Thank you for making my life beautiful! FROM MY HEART TO YOURS
I would like to begin my post by saying this to all my dedicated listeners, motivators, applauders ,
strangers whose positive vibes I may be missing and my dearest family and friends…
Parenting in a Global Culture!
My goal was to interview at least four Asian mothers (see below why I chose Asian families), and I have the honor of dialoguing with four Asian daughters. To my surprise, the results of the interviews were exactly what I expected.
For the last couple of years, there have been many dialogues, articles, etc. written about Asian parenting. Why, you wonder? Because although Asian parenting seems to be in total contrast with how Europeans or White Americans raise their children, Asian children have academically been successful, and seem to respect and value family and family values more so than their European counterparts.
I was curious about these phenomena, so I ended up interviewing four Asian women, all graduate students, (two from India, one from Pakistan, and the last from China, all second generation immigrants) about their experiences growing up and how parenting and culture played a role. Interestingly enough, everyone seemed to be on the same page.
The mission behind World Women Global Council is empowering global communities by bringing women to the forefront defining success and family values at its core. I am very proud to see this global platform of women helping each other. Read More…
