The Conclave

Two Days of Powerful Talks
8th - 9th February 2020

Historically, women have always been a significant catalyst for societal change and progress in India. Some of the earliest social ventures, ranging from Lijjat to SEWA, were established by women who were able to overcome gender specific challenges and make a difference in the lives of other people.

Over the years, their number has grown and many women social entrepreneurs and changemakers are using innovative models and strategies to address myriad societal problems such as access to education, promoting sustainable livelihoods, women empowerment, environmental protection, etc. It is useful to learn from their experiences, innovations and challenges.

Correspondingly, in 2020, the Conlave's theme – Women Changemakers in Social Sector aimed to celebrate, showcase, and learn from such women and their ventures, and to create a platform for knowledge-sharing and partnerships.

Sub-themes

The conference design entailed the following sessions, where social entrepreneurs/ development sector professionals will share their experiences, issues and challenges:

  • Entrepreneurship for Transforming Education

  • Skilling for Inclusion

  • Building the Ecosystem for Social Entrepreneurs

  • Initiatives for Environmental Sustainability
