“Why do we need to recognise and have dialogues around women in the workforce – especially, if we are talking of creating a more equal world?”

Now there’s a frequently asked question – the answer to which lies in many a study, survey, analysis, report, index, and what-have-you on the state of gender equity in the workplace and in the world at large.

But perhaps none more than the female labour force participation rate in India, which shows that despite comprising over half the country’s population, women make up just 23.3 percent of the overall workforce. This means, around 77 percent of working age females remain locked out of the job market, suggesting a massive loss of economic opportunity for the country.    

More than enough reasons for us to champion women changemakers and leaders in different fields – their achievements, their grit, their fortitude, and their willingness to go places – something HerStory has steadfastly done for many years through our stories and initiatives like our flagship Women on a Mission Summit.

This year, we’re excited to announce that the Women on a Mission Summit will be held on March 11-12, 2022, during the International Women’s Day week, with the mission to  serve as the platform for inspiration to move people to action via provocative conversations, compelling story-telling and pledges to advance change for women in the workforce.

It will also honour women leaders from different fields who are instrumental in making a positive difference in the world we live in today through the Women on A Mission 2022 Awards. 

After all, the times when women stood invisible in a crowd or on the sidelines are over. We need to empower more women to emerge out of the shadows, take the lead and move forward, and that’s what we’ll do at the Women on a Mission Summit through several initiatives such as: 

  • 100 women leaders to watch for: HerStory’s curated list of 100 Women Leaders to Watch for features women who are carving a niche for themselves in different fields and are poised to be among the most influential leaders and change-makers of tomorrow
  • Report Launch: A research report on the State of Women in tech entrepreneurship in India showcasing key trends and insights based on a data-backed deep-dive analysis of the sector
  • HerStory Pioneers: Spotlighting women who are pioneers in their field of work and are paving the way for a more equal world
  • Masterclasses, Mentorship and Workshops
  • Networking opportunities and many more

HerStory, for the past many years, has brought to you, stories of women – voices from the boardroom to the streets – of struggles and challenges – heard without any kind of judgement. It continues to promote, celebrate, and rejoice about amazing and extraordinary stories – of unheard voices that need a platform to speak up and be heard. As an extension of this narrative, we launched the Women on a Mission Summit to showcase changemakers who are committed to changing the narrative to that of an equal world. 

It’s time to script a new ‘HerStory’ and for every story to shine!
