  • Making a strong case for allocation of significant CSR funds towards empowerment of women especially those who live in villages

We take great pleasure in inviting researchers, academics, journalists, policymakers, women activists, influencers and members from NGOs to send in their abstracts for the Conference.

Your abstracts may cover a range of subjects – from how various IT-enabled services can serve as effective tools for women-led enterprises in areas such as e-commerce, e-learning, etc., to how self-help groups can play a more effective role in empowering women in India.

You may also highlight on why and how women in India are required to embrace e-commerce to develop and sell their products/services in a bigger way.

This Conference is not only a tribute to the ideals of Swami Vivekananda and his disciple Sister Nivedita who devoted her life for women education & empowerment in India in the late 19th and 20th century, but is also an expression of our desire to collaborate with all stakeholders –the government, industry and social organisations – for achieving the goal of economic freedom and social equity for women, the dream of Sister Nivedita for free India.
