AccelHERate

India’s Biggest B2B Conference for Companies Committed to Accelerate Women's Careers.

It's Time to AccelHERate

Accelerate Graph

Industry averages in India show that companies employ 30% women at entry level but that this tapers off to 10% at management and a measly 1% in the C-suite.

Studies also showcase that diversity leads to India’s GDP rising by 27%, if female participation matched male levels.*

Don't you think it’s time to AccelHERate?

Then join us as we accelerate the Recruitment, Retention, and Promotion of women in the Indian workplace.

    Tech-up Women
      The future of AI will change everything about life. And the gender bias that’s permeated history has already reared its ugly head.The AI revolution has, until now, been shaped by men and is starting to marginalize half of the world’s most critical stakeholders: women. How can we make huge decisions that have global implications if women — half of the world’s population — are missing from the equation? The results could be catastrophic.To address this challenge of AI, we need a body of diverse leaders in Tech, led by women, to come together and create industry-wide standards.

    Investing in the Power of Women
      The future is female. We want girls to grow up and be brave,smart and strong instead of beautiful and perfect. We want corporations and employers to view women and men through the same lens and to pay them the same amount for the same work. We want females to be inspired by other women, to have role models and opportunities to try new things in supportive environments. We want girls to grow up believing that they can accomplish anything and that there are no barriers or ceilings to the heights they can climb. We have lofty goals, to exist in our society and reach a state of true gender equality.
