“Investing in women means investing in the people who invest in everyone else.”  - Melinda Gates
Women don multiple hats today as an entrepreneur, an executive, a leader, a manager, a homemaker and so on. Creating an ecosystem that helps women balance the multiple roles they play in life is essential to the empowerment of women. Every year, March 8th is celebrated as International Women’s Day to honor women and assess how far they have come and what more can be done to empower her. 
This year, the theme for the International Women’s Day 2020 is ‘Each for Equal’ – which is aimed at creating an equal world for an enabled world. Equality is not a women’s issue, but a business issue and each of us needs to strive to achieve a gender equal world. A recent McKinsey report reveals that in the last five years, more women have risen to the top levels in their companies. A large number of companies are consciously encouraging gender diversity and the companies where men actively champion gender diversity are much more likely to progress than the rest. 
On the occasion of Women’s day this year, which is also our Silver Jubilee year, we at SDMIMD, have put together a one-day training program “Empow(h)er” on Friday, March 6, 2020, for women, by women. This program is aimed at women professionals and will comprise of sessions to empower women. The program has been conceived and executed by the women faculty at SDMIMD under the guidance of the Deputy Director, Dr. H. Gayathri. 
To encourage greater participation in the sessions, we have limited the number of participants to 30. Since registration is on first come first served basis, we request you to register at the earliest. As a special gesture towards women professionals, the  registration fee is only Rs. 2000.
