Sheroes is a platform for women professionals committed to career success and work-life balance. It invites working women across sectors and age-groups to proactively access various career opportunities and resources. Sheroes provides accessible partnership programs and work opportunities with women-friendly employers. Apart from this, participating women gain access to career resources, information and community sharing. The company has mentors that actively engage with their users to help them attain career success. The platform also allows businesses to post jobs.
The biggest challenge for the company was challenging stereotypes and gender roles in a traditionally patriarchal society. The founder, Sairee Chahal, says, “To be honest, we are still a work in progress. Our women are at the centre of our project. It’s really about putting them first and staying true to our purpose”. When it began, it focused on mid-career women professionals. Now, it has expanded its base to include women across all age groups- from those who are just commencing their career to women experimenting with categories and industries. Till date, the company has served over 10 lac women.
Sheroes’ goal is to develop their product and make it accessible to a larger pool of women. In about five years, the company expects to go global and achieve a significantly wider user base.
