    The King's Speech is a richly enjoyable, instantly absorbing true-life drama, based on King George VI.

    It is an inspirational tale of one man’s quest to find his voice.

    Following the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII, Bertie who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of the United Kingdom. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife Elizabeth seeks out the help of eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue.

    Written by David Seidler and directed by Tom Hooper, it stars Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush in lead roles.

    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.

    McKinsey & Company has been researching, publishing, and helping shape action on gender diversity for more than a decade. 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.

    Join us to know about the personal experience of and thoughts of prominent personalities about ‘what holds women back and how that can change’.
