Why Women on A Mission Awards?

The female employment rate in India has tumbled from an already-low 35% in 2005 to just 26% in 2018. The economy has more than doubled in size and the number of working-age women has grown by a quarter, to 470m. Yet, nearly 10 million fewer women are in jobs.

It is imperative that we celebrate and recognise women from different fields who are instrumental in making more women join, continue, and grow in the workforce.

With more than 500 influencers attending the summit, this is a chance to meet and interact with change makers, who are defining the workforce with their contributions and impact.

Meet extraordinary women, all under one roof.
