It is said that certain incidents in life change the trajectory of one’s life.
In 2017, a security guard lost his job for an act committed out of ignorance of the laws relating to sexual harassment. At that time, all POSH trainings were conducted in English. Dr Advani realised that support staff would understand Hindi better. She volunteered and conducted training for Security guards, Housekeeping staff, Pantry boys, Electricians etc in Hindi. The response was overwhelming.
What started in 2017, as a voluntary experiment, became a passion and the path towards the future. Dr. Sandya conducted training for various offices across India. Simultaneously she built up her skills by undergoing Train the Trainer programs and pursued Executive certifications in POSH. Dr. Advani retired as Director, Administration and Facilities from Accelya Kale Solutions Limited in March 2019.
POSH Systems.com was founded on 22/6/2019. The purpose was to continue the work she had commenced and follow her passion of making a difference to the lives of women by generating awareness on the laws relating to prevention of sexual harassment.
Dr Advani firmly believes that proper employee sensitization leads to reduction of complaints of sexual harassment at the workplace.
