Communications specialist Parul Sharma conferred WEF award

Parul Sharma, a communications specialist who was until recently spokeswoman for Star India, was conferred the Women Economic Forum’s Women of the Decade in Media and Social Change Award to recognize her contribution and achievements in the industry.

Sharma was accorded the honour on Tuesday, May 9, at a gala event in New Delhi, where journalists Seema Goswami and Barkha Dutt were also felicitated.

The event was also attended by Press Trust of India CEO Venky Venkatesh, New York Times’ South Asia bureau’s Ellen Barry, PTC Network CEO Rajiee M. Shinde, and South East Europe’s Social Media Influencer Dragana Djermanovic.

“The recognition could not have come at a better time, as I stand at the threshold of a great new opportunity. I see this award from WEF as not just something that recognizes my contribution of the past, but as something that has helped me decide about my future as well,” said Sharma, who this month moved on from Star after 14 years as the broadcaster’s Head of Corporate and Marketing Communications.

Speaking at the event, Dr Harbeen Arora, Founder and Global Chairperson, ALL Ladies League (ALL) and Women Economic Forum (WEF) said, “WEF is a supportive platform where women from all walks of life can come and empower their skills, attitudes and networks. This year, almost 18 Women Economic Forum events would get organized across the world; with the purpose of giving women worldwide greater voice and visibility.”
