MUMBAI: As a culmination of the MG Changemakers campaign, MG Motor India and The Better India today organized a joint session with 6 women changemakers and Nandita Das, noted actor and social activist, and UN Women India; to encourage more women to get inspired and bring about a positive change in the society.
During the past six weeks, MG Motor India has successfully highlighted the incredible work that six Indian women have done for marginalised communities and those that find themselves at the fringes.
Along with the 6 featured changemakers, many other women who have been doing exemplary work in the fields of social growth and development were also a part of the Unconference.
In keeping with the theme of the campaign, the panel discussion focussed on equal access for women to education, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes. The deliberations focussed on how these are rights that not only benefit women but benefit humanity at large.
