    Day:       Monday
    Time:     5.00 pm
    Venue:   Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building, Churchgate.

    Many women prefer to get into salaried jobs, preferring the steady working hours, income and perks like health insurance and paid leaves. Entrepreneurship is still perceived as a riskier option, requiring longer work hours and lacking a fixed income every month.

    Women Entrepreneurs can not only contribute to the GDP, but can also play a key role in addressing societal challenges. Women entrepreneurs have to find a balance economically and financially, both on the home front and in their career. Women play a very important and vital role in every aspect of life and therefore it is imperative that they be helped to attain a balance between work, personal life, family life and social life.

    IMC Ladies’ Wing invites you to the panel discussion on the multifaceted role of today’s Women Entrepreneurs who will share their personal experience and insights and how they have made a mark in their industries.

    Women and Criminal Law - 4th July, 2018


    Day:       Wednesday
    Time:     3.30pm
    Venue:  Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building, Churchgate.

    Many strides have been made in the past few years by legislation relating to women in India. Recent amendments to the Indian Penal Code, the POCSO Act (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012), the introduction of law on the Prevention of Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace, the Domestic Violence Act, and many other legal provisions have sharply brought women centric issues to the fore. Much as these provisions aim to protect, there has also been an unfortunate unsavoury trend of misuse of these very laws leaving the field open for debate as to their actual efficacy.

    IMC Ladies’ Wing invites you for the event, Women and Criminal Law, an interactive session with a sitting judge of the Bombay High Court Hon’ble Justice Revati Mohite Dere to explore and learn these facets of law impacting each one of us.

    Ensuring women’s equality in work and society is a social imperative that represents one of the most sizable economic opportunities for the world. A powerful engine of global growth, pursuing the goal of gender parity can lift many women out of poverty, unleash the economic potential of many others, and reinforce a region’s dynamic growth story.

At this event IMC Ladies’ Wing will be releasing their report on Advancing Women’s equality in Asia Pacific and in particular the India Chapter. They will present highlights from their new research on how India fares on gender parity compared to other countries in the Asia-Pacific region, and what are the big opportunities to improve.

    Mr. Nadir Godrej, Managing Director of Godrej Industries, is our keynote speaker. His address will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Ms. Gunjan Soni, CMO, Myntra, Ms. Pavithra YS, Co-Founder of Vindhya E Infomedia - a BPO for the differently abled, and Mr. Vivek Pandit, senior partner, McKinsey. Their conversation will focus on what business and society can do to improve gender equality.
