10 Leaders Who Redefine Leadership
Mukut Ray | India
Leading with Love
“My approach to leadership could be a pep talk, like saying to someone ‘You are good, and you have the confidence to go further’…These seemingly small words can actually transform a person’s life.”
Mukut Ray is a leading and loving voice in the World Pulse community, empowering others through her constant and supportive engagement online. An outspoken advocate against gender-based violence in her country, she has tackled issues ranging from dowry violence to child trafficking and has fervently advocated for the rights of India’s widows.
She sees women in India advancing as leaders but she tells us that if you “scratch a little deeper, out comes the harsh truth”: deep-seated patriarchy and misogyny that devalues women and threatens their health, happiness, and very lives.
Trained in economics, travel, and tourism, she left a corporate job last year to advance women’s rights in her community. She is involved with the non-profit Deoraj Trust, a community driven initiative that educates and mentors women and girls, and her voice has continued to rise during World Pulse’s 2013 Voices of Our Future program. She is often the first to leave supportive comments and words of encouragement on others’ writing. With grace and warmth, she helps others do their best work and become their best selves.
