Tata Steel's Tejaswini Project trains unskilled women employees to operate heavy vehicles and machinery. Tata’s steel is known for its strength and durability. But their values get stronger by ‘Tejaswini’.
Everyone gets ready to polish a diamond but only some has the ability to make a stone shine like precious diamond. Tata Steel is doing it through Tejaswini. The company breaks the social barriers of gender inequality by empowering women. They stress onto women’s reach. Women can reach to heights if they tie a small knot to their pallu or dupatta saying “they can or they will”.
One beneficiary of ‘Tejaswini’ is Asha Hansda. She says that she's proud of what she is. She is doing the work of an ambulance driver and operator. She works to save lives of those in need. Anyone will get the full positive spirits after looking at Asha’s work. Not only Asha, number of tribal women have benefited from the Tata Steel Tejaswini Project. No job is difficult if one has the will and determination to do it.
Values Stronger than Steel is what drives these women forward to serve as an inspiration to others.Empowering these unskilled women is more than just a policy for Tata Steel. It’s a belief and this belief finds strength each time these women smile with confidence.
No matter how strong their steel may be, their values always remain stronger through Tejaswini.
