With a view to encourage women to come out of the confined walls and make a foot fall at work place, thus adding their share of talent to the growth of the society, an array of determined and eminent women will share their success stories at the Woman Up! summit 2017. The event will be held from 1-3 December at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur.

"The changing times have opened newer horizons for women who wish to bring in a positive change by contributing their share of talent and making use of the same to achieve their goals and dreams in life. We live in an era where working from comfort of the home and working outside of the haven is possible. It is time women cash in on the opportunity and not restrict themselves to kitchens alone." says Mita Kapoor. She further adds,  " The main long-term goal of Woman Up! Summit is to get firms, companies, and corporations to pledge to add women to their work-force.
