March 2021

The SEEMA Magazine March 2021 issue, published on International Women’s Day, celebrates the 2021 theme of “choose to challenge” featuring 25 South Asian women who are redefining what it means to be a leader in our community. SEEMA also marks women’s history month and will pay tribute to women all month on SEEMA platforms recognizing those who made a difference in the world.

At SEEMA, we feel that March is always a time to emerge out of hibernation. As we welcome Spring and more daylight, it’s time to test and revive our many dormant aspirations as women.  We also continue to shed more light on the contributions of South Asian women in our society and bring the hidden figures to life with our stories.

It is the perfect time to watch things grow, to reflect, to choose, to challenge. That’s why this month’s issue focuses on women who are charting new paths, choosing to test new grounds.

In this issue, and at the SEEMA summit, we feature South Asian women leaders from London to LA, and Mumbai to Manhattan, Melbourne and beyond. Via live sessions and streamed taped content on, our platform brings together the pick of South Asian women. Our topics – and the people we feature – reflect themes that SEEMA regularly covers while empowering women and fostering female entrepreneurs.

SEEMA represents a growing global community that speaks for women who break barriers, influence change and create a better future for our next generation. We want to bring your their stories. So we invite you to read and be inspired by the 25 women of all ages and persuasions featured in this issue.

Let us reimagine what it means to be a South Asian woman and celebrate our shared success in every community around the world.
