Actor Sonam Kapoor is not just a fashion icon but an inspiration to many young girls in India, especially for her fashion statement. She also received a lot of praises with her open letter titled “I Didn’t Wake Up Like This”, busting the myth of flawlessness. The star has also been very vocal about condemning body shaming and embracing individual beauty. The actress continues to break the myths about celebrity fashion all the way to Harvard Business School’s India Research Center. They have invited Sonam to be a part of “Best of Harvard in South Asia” platform. Sonam will share insights and participate in the interesting debate that promises to be an eye-opener.
The acclaimed institution has invited the National Award-winning actress to talk about the pitfalls and challenges associated with both notions of beauty and the aspiration to look “beautiful”. Says Sonam Kapoor, “I look forward to joining the conversation conducted by the HBS. I think the subject is very relevant to our time.”
Harvard Business School’s India Research Center, as part of the “Best of Harvard in South Asia” platform, conducts lectures, roundtables, panel discussions and debates around substantive topics that are relevant from an India perspective and provide business leaders an opportunity to access some of the latest research taking place at Harvard Business School.
They will be launching their Gender Series later this month and the first conversation in the series is with HBS Professor Geoffrey G. Jones, Isidor Straus Professor of Business History & Faculty Chair of the Business History Initiative, on the topic “Beauty: Limiting or Liberating”. The event will be curated at a luxury hotel in South Mumbai later this week.
