Knowing your commitment towards making a Gender Equal Planet by 2030, I am writing this with a special request to be the Media Partner for GES 2021
GES 2021 in India carries forward the momentum built by the previous three summits around Gender Equal India. It resonates the global commitment towards developing a strong India roadmap towards gender equality by discussing policies, leadership, gender-specific initiatives, and technology that can enable women to recover and thrive in a post-COVID world to emerge as equal participants in the workforce across the formal and informal sectors. It provides a national platform to discuss our collective responsibility and exploring pathways towards gender inclusive outcomes in society and specifically the workforce.
