In the caption, she wrote, “#EntrepreNaari at the U.S Consulate. Speaking about working towards gender-equal boardrooms in India. Thank you for all your support." While this seems like a great achievement, netizens seem to have an issue with the same. Many highlighted that she has has never worked in an organization or stepped inside a gender-inequal boardroom therefore, speaking about the same at such a big platform is a little odd.

There were many who commented on her Instagram post. “Really how this girl is getting these platforms without doing anything worthwhile to be recognizes," wrote an Instagram user. Another person wrote, “Lol. How????? You’ve. Never worked in an organisation before. What experience/ exposure do you have to provide your inputs on such a sensitive and burning topic. Don’t tell me you “researched” for it.

There are employees / colleagues I know who have been tirelessly working towards this cause, without any PR stunts like what you just did.
