Women’s Cell of Navrachana University celebrated Women’s Day with a panel discussion on March 8, 2019. Among the panelists were Ms Avi Sabavala, Independent Director, Neogen Chemicals Limited and Governing Body Member of GNFC; Ms Suchitra Parikh, Co-founder of Theatre Company-Page to Stage and H R Consultant, and Ms Kalpa Rachh Corporate Training Consultant and founder of software and content development company. The panelist addressed the very basic concern of women in family and professional life. As the university students were to enter the professional world, issues of safety at work places were discussed.
A significant feature of the event was the mixed audience of men and women. This facilitated an implicit sensitization of the men as equal partners of women. Shrimati Tejalben Amin, Chairperson, Navrachana Education Society, reminded that women must realize their potential and women must also form a network of support. Dr. Nilay Yajnik, Provost, Navrachana University, in his welcome address drew attention to the balance for better theme.
