On April 19, 2018 Women on Wings and ACCESS Development Services, organized a conference in New Delhi which brought together 100 thought leaders to delve into women’s empowerment through social enterprises. While the conference celebrated the accomplishment of entrepreneurs who work towards women empowerment, it also aimed to highlight critical gaps that need to be met to create an environment within which more women are able to break the glass ceiling.

Realizing that the glass ceiling would not be broken by the end of the conference itself, ACCESS Development Services and Women on Wings collected a number of stories from its partners who had taken the journey successfully. For themselves and for the women they employ in their companies. In a glossy magazine styled publication, 10 entrepreneurs penned down their journey, including their lessons, to inspire the audience of the conference and to leave them with optimism that, despite the long road ahead, a lot has been achieved already.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
