What is 

MARUPADI (மறுபடி) is a career-relaunch boot-camp presented by the Zoho School for Graduate Studies.


Through this program, we aim to empower Women in Tech to jumpstart their career after a career break.

Why MARUPADI?

Women at Work are well-known for their high emotional quotient, hard work, and out-of-the-box innovative spirit. But what happens after a CAREER BREAK? A stagnation, a derailment, a wasted opportunity, a bypassed talent.

                                     

To demolish this dreaded blockade and to shine a spotlight on the largest unrecognized talent pool in the world, Zoho Schools has started MARUPADI (மறுபடி a Tamil word meaning 'again').

Our program strives to

Help women-in-tech to enter the workforce AGAIN

Provide a useful learning space for mothers to BRUSH UP on their trade!

Serve as the next step for women who yearn for a COMEBACK
