Sonam Kapoor receives ‘I Am Woman’ women empowerment award

Mumbai: KGEF and IE Business School’s I Am Woman Movement aiming to empower women achievers, awarded Sonam Kapoor the I Am Woman Award for her effortless and inspirational portrayal of the fearless airhostess who put the lives of the passengers above her own.

 ‘I AM WOMAN’ Movement celebrates and awards the inspiration of women, where in power women speak about their personal and professional challenges and how they overcame them. Apart from Sonam Kapoor, the other recipients include Lucky Morani, Amrita Raichand, Kiran Bawa, Rouble Nagi, Nisha JamVwal, Reshma Merchant, Raunaq Roy, Maheka Mirpuri, Devita Saraf among others, each woman who has carved a niche by herself. Other than educationist Karan Gupta, Nitish Shah, the guests Mohomed Morani, Sana Khaan, Jalpa Vithalani, Kavitta Verma, Aarzoo Govitrikar, Bina Aziz, Vidya Malwade, director Sanjay Dayma and a host of others.

Elated at the award, Sonam Kapoor said that she believes in equal opportunity. “One thing I learnt while paying Neerja is that fear is something you don’t have to live with. You can embrace it, understand it and it can actually give you the strength and the courage to do what you seek to do. Follow your dreams and be the best version of yourself,” she added.

“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform,” Diane Mariechild. This quote resonates with what we believe in. Nothing can be more inspiring than listening to the success stories of our power women. This will sow the seeds of courage, resilience and empowerment to thousands of women. KGEF and IE Business School are committed to the success of women and IE welcomes women to study in the various programs that the school offers,” said Karan Gupta, Harvard Business School alum and the founder of KGEF, KGC and the Managing Director of IE Business School (India & South Asia).
