Have you heard of the saying “Empowered women empower women”? On the occasion of this International Women’s Day, many women from across different fields came together to promote exactly this in Delhi and strengthen a network of women to support other women.
Women Inspiring Network (WIN), a platform that has connected 7,000 women into a vibrant digital network, organised an event in association with FICCI G20 Empower, to celebrate women and their achievements recently.
A diverse group of women leaders, from entrepreneurs to politicians, got together at FICCI House, New Delhi, to share their stories and insights on how to break the glass ceiling and connect with younger women who are looking to follow in their footsteps.
WIN achieved this through several panel discussions and a Global Mentoring Walk which allowed an exchange of ideas and promoted a sense of sisterhood that is so vital for the empowerment of women in the country.
The event hosted three important panels, including ‘Mental Health and Wellness’, ‘Women Leadership: Making an Impact’, and ‘Design and Beauty For A Sustainable Future’.
Each panel had a host of experts from different fields who gave holistic insights into different issues that women have to worry about on a daily basis, especially when it comes to their workplaces and finding their place in society.
Stuti Jalan, the founder of WIN, said, “We are grateful to this dynamic group for coming together for the Global Mentoring Walk, which is an opportunity for women in our community, and around the world, to unite around a common purpose. Together, we will pave the way for the next generation of women leaders.”
According to Jalan, Global Mentoring Walks, like the one organised this year, have been going on since 2008 and have managed to bring together women from across the world. “This year, Global Mentoring Walks‘ worldwide theme was Time for Audacious Action. A call for the use of one’s power, platform, and position to empower and embolden others. Flag Bearers around the world are actively illustrating this concept by using the one day they oversee to convene their community and improve women’s lives moving forward,” she said.
