Glass ceilings for women in workplaces are breaking, one sector at a time. In an unparalleled move, the Ministry of Personnel appointed Dr Neelu Rohmetra of Jammu University as the director of Indian Institute of Management Sirmaur, Himachal Pradesh, thereby becoming the first woman director any IIM has ever had.
