Proud Graduates

From the First Cohort

This year, I was able to participate in the Shoktikonna Leadership Cohort. The program allows young women to develop knowledge and skills in the field of renewable and clean energy while also connecting with industry experts. The experiences have been extremely beneficial to my personal and professional development, and they may help pave the path for future success in the industry.

The program management team was giving participants full support and designed the whole thing keeping us in concern. The total environment was giving me a positive and comfortable vibe. The Cohort was so inspiring for me. Through this cohort, I get the opportunity to learn from admirable people who are contributing to the energy sector to make the world sustainable in energy.

This unique hybrid learning experience was tailored to address the specific needs and opportunities in the rapidly evolving energy sector for young women students and professionals. Throughout the program, I was exposed to a wealth of professional knowledge and introduced to various avenues for personal development, all of which contribute to becoming a successful leader.

Everything from learning core leadership skills to gaining insights into the renewable energy industries to numerous outreach programs at ME SOLshare Ltd., GIZ Bangladesh, etc has shaped me in ways that were beyond my imagination.
