India’s Largest Platform for Women leaders Recognition

There are no limits to what actually you can achieve today, the only thing required is Right ambition and Right attitude!
Today women leaders are excelling across industries and job functions, addressing the most critical issues, through the lens of opportunity and breaking the stereotypes in their respective fields.
More and more women are making their mark as leaders today. However, for many, it’s still a long way to the top, as they continue to face various challenges that limit their career growth. With all these changes happening it is inevitable to celebrate the positive changes that have occurred, learn from the experiences of women who have succeeded, understand the obstacles faced, and learn and analyse the steps taken to overcome these challenges.

We as women are the CEOs, Directors and Thought Leaders!
We are investors and entrepreneurs, dreamers and doers, mothers and mentors!
It’s time for all of us to come in together, share stories, experiences and resources— and support each other as we together change the world.

The Women Empowerment Summit and GIWL 2022 brings in together the leading experts and leaders across industries who will provide the direction, focus and clarity in order to achieve our goals and how they themselves did it.
