Today, women and men are on an equal footing in the field of gender equality in all fields and women entrepreneurs will continue to play an important role in future global economic and social development. At present, there are many challenges for women entrepreneurs to start or to grow a business, and with this in mind, the Rotary Club of Pune Pride has commenced the Nawani (Nurturing Atma Nirbhar Women with Novel Initiatives) platform to promote and guide women entrepreneurs at all levels. The announcement was made recently by renowned biker and Rotarian Jay Bharti and newly elected Governor of Rotary International District 3131 Manju Phadke.
Speaking on the occasion, Ashwini Ganapule, President, Rotary Club of Pune Pride, said that the main objective of the platform is to impart confidence and self-reliance to women entrepreneurs through advanced education, guidance and inclusive management. Anuja Kolhatkar, Vocational Services Director of the Club, said that this platform will help women entrepreneurs to realize their talents and skills and capture new areas of business growth.
Under the Nawani initiative, ten women entrepreneurs from different backgrounds in different fields were selected by the selection committee. All the guidance these ten women need for their business growth will be provided by mentors appointed by the club. Club Secretary Sudhir Bapat, Director Medha Rajpathak Dhorje and Parag Mule were present on the occasion.
