Ripples of Success

It is worth noting that work participation rate for women in India fell from 25.6 per cent in 2001 to 21.9 per cent in 2011–2012. The latest data shows that, of the total organised sector employment in the country in 2010, women accounted for only 20.4 per cent of the total workforce. Women’s participation in the workforce would propel our country’s progress forward in a tangible way. Studies suggest that if India increased its female labour force participation by 10 per cent (68 million more women) by 2025, it could increase its GDP growth to 16 per cent. It is estimated that 217 million women are missing from the workforce.

However, women need sufficient support in order to be able to sustain their presence in the workforce, but often suffer from a lack of the same. To bridge this gap, Global Adjustments Foundation provides life coaching through workshops that are customised to specific needs. These interactive sessions tap on real-life inspiration, so that the participants can adapt and implement the learnings as per their individual needs and strengths.

“Our vision is to empower women to be a balanced, confident and productive workforce. We provide life coaching to
maximise the emotional, physical and leadership skills of women,” says Ranjini Manian, Founder of Global
Adjustments Foundation. It is a moment of pride for Global Adjustments Foundation that over 40,000 women, including
homepreneurs, IT workers, nurses, police, soldiers, students and teachers, have participated in our interactive workshops
and benefited from the programmes. “We show ways that lift self-esteem, will power and self-discipline to manifest potential. We enable women to relate positively with themselves and the world,” says Usha Ramakrishnan, Director of Global Adjustments Foundation.

Our programs are run completely free of cost for participants; we depend on corporates and individuals to champion the movement. To book a program or support us, call +91-98405 20394 or email foundation@globaladjustments.com



I am empowered and have learnt to be ‘quietly assertive’ – my thoughts and actions were deeply influenced by this one line shared at the workshop. I am forever grateful. I have opened my motor garage and it is running well.

I am currently running an online accessories business. I was worried about whether I would get my investment back, but
I am now motivated thanks to the teachings from the workshop. Tenacity, self-belief and planning are the tools I gained. Thank you Global Adjustments Foundation! – Divya (a college student from Chennai)
