Priyanka Chopra has always been a strong supporter of change and breaking down barriers. PeeCee has always been an inspiration to others through her work and through her acts towards society. She is a bold woman who is not scared to speak what is on her mind.
Yesterday it was this Queen’s birthday and as she turned a year older she made sure that she was bringing in some change with her small but important steps. Priyanka earlier this year introduced a pay parity to encourage a gender-neutral environment for everyone. On her birthday she introduced some benefits for the women working in her production house Purple Pebble Productions.
All the working mothers in PeeCee’s production house will get some extra benefits like flexible work timings and also all women will get some special benefits during their maternity leaves.
Priyanka’s mother Madhu Chopra while talking to a leading daily, said,
“Since 80 percent of our female staff is married, we had to keep their interests in mind. The idea was simple — why should women’s life choices become professional hurdles? The policy of flexible timings for mothers was set in place by Priyanka, but fine-tuned by senior members of our company.”
Priyanka has always been vocal about her views. She always believed that a woman should not live a life of compromises. They should not limit themselves because of anything. Priyanka’s mother also revealed that it was the strong feminist in Priyanka that wanted to create a safe and loving environment for all women working for her.
PeeCee proved that she is stands for gender parity by thinking about something that is rarely even talked about – Paternity leaves.
When asked if men also enjoy the same benefits as women, Priyanka’s mother just said this,
“That’s the rule of gender parity. One of our marketing executives took paternity leave of four weeks.”
PeeCee’s team is also working to build an in-house crèche for their employees. Now that is so sweet and considerate of you Priyanka. You are truly an inspiration for everyone.
