With the aim of making the ‘Women of Worth’ initiative bigger and showcasing its commitment towards the cause, L’Oréal Paris in partnership with NDTV hosted ‘Women of Worth’ conclave on the occasion of International Women’s Day. Distinguished personalities and influencers from across the countrywere invited to participate in the discussion that tried to touch upon key women related issues that are plaguing modern India and the role played by the women in our lives in today’s age and time.
Divided into four sessions, the panel discussion brought to the forefront some hard hitting points on women’s issues like gender equality, pay parity, safety for women in India and the position of women in the corporate world. The afternoon was opened by Dr. Prannoy Roy, Executive Co-Chairperson, NDTV Group.
