Ishwariya is an inspiring and empowering speaker who creates a safe space for frank discussions on the topic of confidence: something that is not easy for women to reveal when working in male-dominated environments, owing to the immense pressure they face to ‘look the part’.

“Thank you so much for a great MWA session this past Wednesday. You touched upon so many of the subjects that our community members have shared concerns with us about; from having the courage to speak up for ourselves (and for one another), to remembering why we’re pursuing our chosen path in the first place.” - Anik Pearson, Mentorship for Women in Architecture
