India Society of Worcester (ISW) launched a new platform for women from all walks of life to come together by sharing their life experiences.

Celebrating 2 years of ISW-Women Empowering Women (WEW) Initiative!

Date: 21st January 2023 Venue: India Society of Worcester, 152 Main Street, Shrewsbury, MA 01545 Time: 4:00 to 6:00 PM

Attire: Indo-Western

On January 21st, 2023, ISW-WEW will celebrate two years of its launch as part of one of the ISW 2025 initiatives. The keynote speaker for the event is Dr. Manju Sheth (Physician, President: INE Multimedia, Women Who Win, Creator: Chai with Manju, NECA Awards, Director: Woman of the year & IMANE President 2013).

As a token of our gratitude, members of the first panel will be presented with mementos and all the panelists who have been involved so far will be recognized for their roles in orchestrating the success of the program.

Dr. Manju Sheth: “Women have always been quoted as the real architects of society. They have the power to build strong families and also bring the community together. Women also love to get inspired by achievements of other women so I am thrilled that ISW and a great women's team led by Snehalata Kadam have taken this wonderful initiative to bring women together so we can learn from each other. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and sharing my journey.”

Prof. Snehalata Kadam: Our mission is to promote women’s sense of self-worth and their potential to influence social change for themselves. As the global landscape for women’s empowerment is changing, we at ISW envision a community where women are empowered at the workplace, home, and the community. Our past and upcoming events will help women reach their potential by providing recourses to build relationships, network and connections. I am inspired by Malala Yousafzai who once said “I raise up my voice not that I can shout, but so that those who without a voice can be heard. We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.

Program Advisor Shiamin Melville shares her experience from one of the panel discussions, “One of the panels I attended was on issues faced by entrepreneurs. They openly shared the trials they faced and how it was so important to reach out for additional resources and also be able to pivot when a fresh opportunity came their way.”

President Mr. Puneet Kohli: “Congratulations on the second anniversary of the ISW-WEW initiative. This platform provides a guiding path to encourage, enlighten and empower the female diaspora of the community.”
