MAKERS India is announcing its first-ever annual conference in India, based on the theme ‘Women Who Make India.’ Slated for March 12 and 13, the two-day conference will be held virtually owing to the ongoing global pandemic, and aims to be a milestone in India’s journey of gender equality at work.
The theme - Women Who Make India - has been inspired by the necessity to acknowledge and encourage Indian women making a mark across sectors.
