She further adds, “We are in a very interesting time, there is so  much talk about diversity equality, and in a time like that  breaking into top 5 is something that I will very openly say that I very proud  because that hasn’t fallen in my Lap and I have worked very hard for it. In terms of remuneration, be it any field we need to acknowledge women’s contribution in the field.
