We believe that an equal world is a better world. We want to create an inclusive and empowered community for women, by boosting their workforce participation in India. To this end, Verizon Media, the digital media arm of global telecom giant Verizon Communications, and YourStory Media, India’s leading digital storytelling platform for entrepreneurs and changemakers, have entered into a strategic partnership to bring Verizon’s women-focussed media brand MAKERS to India.
The MAKERS Conference is a global leadership event that brings together more than 600 of the most powerful names in business, entertainment, tech and finance to explore ways to accelerate women’s equality. Each year, this three-day experience provides the inspiration that moves people to action via provocative conversations, compelling storytelling and onstage pledges to advance change.
As we work towards building a community of empowered women, we are hosting the first-ever MAKERS India conference. Through our MAKERS India conference, we aim to bring together the most powerful stories and personalities together under one roof and accelerate the women’s movement in our country.
