On 19th September 2019, spent a power-packed day at the CII Foundation ‘s Indian Women Network’s #WomenNation Summit – #BreakingBoundaries where Deepa Pawar spoke about her personal and community’s historical struggles for identity, dignity, expression, basic rights and equal opportunities even today in 2019.
Being the sole NGO representative to speak at this prestigious conclave of women middle and top managers of corporate India, her voice was warmly accepted and listened to as the gathering focused on #Diversity and women’s increased participation in the economy.
It was encouraging to see the corporate space including voices of women from diverse castes, transwomen, etc. when speaking of gender diversity and women’s empowerment.
