AIMA organises a women-centric programme in the month of March for the last 7 years called Pragati to deliberate on the role of the women of today in the corporate world. It celebrates their achievements, it evaluates their challenges and it presents their side of the story. In a way, it’s a platform that celebrates womenhood.
Women of today are at a unique point in the journey to the top. While on one hand they are celebrated as mentally and emotionally tougher, on the other the same traits are considered the biggest impediments in their professional journey. AIMA puts together a platform which underlines their importance to the prosperity of the family, society and the nation.
Ms Veena Swarup, Former Director HR, EIL has been chairing this since its inception. This year it scheduled to thbe held on 16th March 2020 at Hotel Le Meridien, New Delhi.
