Women Transforming India 2021

NITI Aayog’s Women Entrepreneurship Platform is a unique public-private partnership initiative where individuals collaborate and help scale up the efforts towards empowering women by promoting entrepreneurship. Mentorship and skilling programmes of WEP equip entrepreneurs to level the field. Sharing their success stories in social and traditional media provides inspiration and proof that business can be a woman’s world, too, and therefore strengthen the confidence of younger female entrepreneurs. The community module of WEP connects the women entrepreneurs and provides a seamless platform for networking and building sisterhood.

Gender Audit: Women at work

There are glaring gaps between policy mandates and the culture/ behaviour at work places. The recent instances of “Me Too”! underscore the need to scrutinise processes at workplaces and build organisational capacity for ensuring that the working environment supports women’s dignity, safety and equality. The pre-requisite to ensuring gender equity is to formulate gender-aware and evidence-based policies with conscious emphasis on gender friendly work place practices. Simultaneously, there is a need to continuously sensitise workers and managers at all levels, to monitor physical/verbal/sexual harassment of women at workplaces and develop a mechanism to asses and remove gender biases.
