The UT Government and the Union Government have undertaken significant steps towards inclusion of women led initiatives for a balanced growth. India has rightly called for the inclusion of gender concerns into the core agenda of the G20 during its Presidency, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi noting that “we have to maintain priority on women-led development even in our G-20 agenda”.
The two-day workshop is a part of a series of events to be held across the country to aid and provide a platform to women entrepreneurs. The workshop will help to organize resources and augment the strength of women participants to help them to reach their full potential. Such events and workshops act as an enabling factor for the social and economic advancement of women and society at large.
The workshop is open for aspiring women entrepreneurs and those startups that are recognized with the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) with at least one female founder.
