I am a Wonder Woman every day: Richa Singh, Natural Diamond Council

One of the most exciting superhero movies of recent times, DC’s ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, narrated the story of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman. She symbolises strength, power, forgiveness and love and bravely fights against all odds to save the world. Well, our real-life powerhouse women leaders are nothing less than a modern-day Wonder Woman and their inspiring stories instil a sense of empowerment and self-belief that one can take on the world.

Richa Singh, Managing Director - India, Natural Diamond Council, is one such multi-faceted leader, who has carved a niche for herself in the industry. Recalling a ‘Wonder Woman’ moment in her life, Singh said that she and her team created a brand in India, which was then taken global, which was a huge sense of achievement for them. Another such moment was winning a Gold at Cannes Lions.

On a personal level, Singh said that motherhood and a smile from her children beats everything hands down. “I am a super proud Ma of two and they challenge me, keep me energised and happy,” she added.

According to Singh, all women who balance work and family are superwomen. She said that she was in awe of the way all women find ways to multi-task and “work like we have clones in the background”.

While DC’s superhero character Wonder Woman has immense power to change things, Singh said that if she had the power, she would make giving back an integral part of their work. It would double the sense of satisfaction at the end of a good workday. “I am a Wonder Woman every day and I truly believe that! I have a huge sense of pride working for an industry that aims to make a difference in the world and in the lives of the not so privileged,” she further said.

Speaking on what she would change if she could go back in time, Singh said it would be only one thing, which was “I believe that we need to ‘Ask’ for what we want, if we don’t ask, we don’t get it. This realisation came to me after many years of working, I would go back in time and be less defensive of being a woman and be more confident to ask for what I deserved.”
