Women Take Charge Town Hall: Join Us With Your City’s Change-Makers!

Join us at Women Take Charge Town Hall, an event for women who want to make a mark for themselves and would love to meet with other such women. Come listen to change-makers from your city, draw inspiration from each other, and take charge!

As women, we are often conditioned to believe that we need to let others handle the ‘big decisions’ of our lives. Today, however, Indian women are taking charge of their lives, and overcoming the challenges they face. What’s more, we draw strength from one another to forge ahead!

Women’s Web brings women in Hyderabad and Pune an opportunity to come together, listen to your city’s change-makers talk of how they met life’s many challenges and took charge, and be inspired by each other. Join us for a morning of inspiration conversation and networking over lunch with women who are creating the agenda of their own lives!

Women Take Charge Town Hall is brought to you in association with Aditya Birla Health Insurance (ABHI), which is a strong believer in diversity at work and encourages women to be decision-makers in all spheres of life.
