Women entrepreneurs account for improved economic growth and stability within a country. Women entrepreneurs inspire other women to start their businesses which lead to more job creation for the women which ultimately helps in reducing the gender gap in the workforce.
World Trade Center Bhubaneswar hosted its Women Forum Meet post pandemic on 8th April 2022 with a view to promote inter-member connectivity and for a better understanding of the assistance required by each of the members to grow their businesses. The meeting aimed to provide a platform to discuss the plan of action for the on-going year, various skilling initiatives to be taken focusing on women entrepreneurship, exhibitions/fairs, effective business opportunities to trade globally and loopholes in the product development which needs to be addressed.
Dr. Rina Routray, Chairperson, Mahila Atmanirbhar Abhiyan & Advisor to the WTC Women forum, graced the session with her valuable suggestions and inputs for the women entrepreneurs to incorporate in their business strategies to further expand and sustain in the market. She delivered valuable key points on how the center is planning to handhold the women entrepreneurs who defy all odds to follow their passion and conduct learning experiences for their entrepreneurial journey. She further inaugurated the re-designed logo of Bartika Handlooms, (a member of WTC Bhubaneswar) dealing with an exquisite collection of handloom sarees and garments.
Earlier in the event, each of the members got to introduce themselves along with their company profiles which helped the newly enrolled as well as the existing members to know about each other’s entities or range of products/services.
The event further witnessed a series of fun activities by and for the members in addition to the overall informative session.
The event was hosted by Ms. Prasanti Tripathi, Director, Om Leisure Hotels.
