Women’s Day at BYJU’S this year was definitely more than just celebrating women for a day. It was also about indulging in some serious conversations around thought-provoking topics, raising awareness against bias, standing together in a show of solidarity, celebrating fun moments together and so much more!
We commenced the month on a powerful note, as BYJUites joined the #breakthebias movement, the IWD theme for 2022, where they crossed their arms and smashed all stereotypes.
Ahead of Women’s Day, we celebrated a Week of Inclusion with four incredible workshops. These sessions helped BYJUites de-stress and educated them about new areas of topics.
The Body Scan Meditation was a perfect way to help BYJUites escape mid-week blues and unwind a little. It helped develop a better awareness of our body’s physical sensations and how they change with our emotions and vice versa.
BYJUites learned guided mindfulness-based stress reduction meditation along with intuitive therapeutic massage techniques creating deep relaxation and some perspective.
