During the event, Minister Anand (pictured above in pink jacket, surrounded by invited guests) reflected on her leadership journey, what it means to be a woman in leadership and how she keeps life in balance.

“We all have our own way to address discrimination,” Minister Anand said. “For me, the way is to keep representing people. Keep being at the table. Keep making your points. Keep asserting the moral truth that discrimination is wrong. Keep going. That’s the only way we’re going to actually have systemic change — for each and every one of us to keep showing up at the table. For our children, for our grandchildren, for our future society. It’s imperative.”
