This Women's Day, we reflect on how far we've come - as individuals, as a team, as a company, as influencers in society, as women in our city, as Indian women...together - and we have to pinch ourselves to believe it. Because one year ago we were started by one woman with a dream to bring Indian women back to work, and today we can see just how many companies and organizations share that dream with us!

We value our collaborations with influential women and their organizations in our mission to bring Indian women back to the workplace, and in this spirit, we would like to share with you 3 unconventional ways to spend a meaningful, connected, and FUN International Women's Day this year...

1) Conscious Closet Party | Shenomics

A Clothes Swapping Movement & Networking Event on International Women’s Day!

Give your closet a socially responsible makeover! Bring in two (or more) of your almost new or lightly worn pieces that you no longer want. Maybe you have one too many FB photos in that top, or perhaps that dress never fit you quite right? Whatever the reason and whatever the item bring it in for a swap! Acceptable items include tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, hats, saaris, scarves- almost anything!! Please ensure these items are laundered, ironed, and in good condition! The day of the event come with your items, network with other women, and swap your pieces for something new that you love. It’s better than shopping, it’s swapping!! Swapping is good for the environment as it recycles and extends the life of clothes. And of course, there is the added bonus of saving us money! We ask all unswapped items be donated at the end of the night. All donated pieces will be sold and proceeds will be given to our charity partner Educate Girls. Bring some, take some, and donate the rest! Tickets to attend the event are being sold online for 500: FB Event Page: Article Further Explaining CCP:

2) #BreakingBarriers | Women's Web

Be inspired by women who mean business.

Breaking Barriers is our flagship event which is in its third edition and is a mega event for women in business, aspiring entrepreneurs, thought leaders and decision makers. This is a three-city event in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore starting on 12th March 2016 and is a great opportunity for women to learn, network and grow.

Women's Web has been part of the lives of 6 million women readers and strives to enrich them. Through Breaking Barriers Women’s Web has connected with over 250 women entrepreneurs.

Breaking Barriers - Marketing Mantras in a Connected World will aid women in revisiting their marketing strategies and help them in understanding new trends with regards to consumer behaviour and open untapped avenues to promote their venture/work with new insights.

The event would feature some highly respected and interesting speakers, such as Bharathi Jacob (SeedFund), Ashwini Ashokan (Mad Street Den), Nidhi Aggarwal(Kaaryah), Sumesh Menon (Investor) sharing their expertise in their respective areas of work.

Breaking Barriers will serve as a platform to network and will also have opportunities like getting marketing pitches evaluated, one on one mentoring with some great minds in the business and a chance to be featured on a Women's Web video after prior registration.
