The objective of the partnership is to develop programmes specially designed for women in leadership, entrepreneurship and those looking to rejoin the workforce.

Workshops are being jointly designed to support women at various stages of their careers, including workshops on leadership , and to upgrade their knowledge and skills portfolio, and peer group support.

The collaboration also includes a unique basic business workshop for women entrepreneurs and sessions on different aspects of scaling women-led businesses such as legal compliances, taxation, finances, and inventory management. The sessions will also cover the marketing and the digital aspect of businesses, discussing the latest trends in the space.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.
