As part of the Best of Harvard in South Asia platform, Harvard Business School’s India Research Center conducts lectures, round tables, panel discussions and debates around substantive topics that are relevant from the perspective of India and provides business leaders an opportunity to access some of the latest research taking place at the institute.
The group will be launching their Gender Series later this month and the first conversation is with HBS Professor Geoffrey G Jones, Isidor Straus Professor of Business History and Faculty Chair of the Business History Initiative, on the topic Beauty: Limiting or Liberating.
The institution has invited Sonam Kapoor to join the esteemed panel.
Sonam will share insights and participate in the interesting debate that promises to be an eye-opener. According to sources, the National Award-winning actress will talk about the pitfalls and challenges associated with both notions of beauty and the aspiration to look beautiful.
A source close to the actress added, “Sonam made for the ideal personality to join the panel, especially since the actress broke the internet earlier last year, with her open letter titled I Didn’t Wake Up Like This, busting the myth of flawlessness. She has also been very vocal about condemning body shaming and embracing individual beauty.”
Sonam shared, “I look forward to joining the conversation conducted by the HBS. I think the subject is very relevant to our time. The event will be curated in Mumbai this week.”
