In the past decade, nations have rushed to acknowledge the disadvantages women face concerning workplace participation, equal wage, reproductive health, and stigmatised gender roles. Yet, whilst many have acknowledged these contingencies, the policies and courses of action differ vastly from society to society. To the dismay of many activists and scholars, a popular trend in recent years is the erasure of women from the debate. Instead of uplifting women by specifically targeting their social disadvantages through guided dialogue and real-time policy, many have resorted to rendering women invisible through so-called gender-neutral policies.
Due to these developments, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation’s (KAS) regional economic program SOPAS, in cooperation with TalentNomics India, launched a two-day conference titled “Enabling an Equiverse: 4W’s- Equal access to Work, Wealth, Wellbeing and Welfare” to specifically discuss the issues women face in regard to their work, wealth, wellbeing, and welfare. With the goal of not only nurturing discussions, the conference also aimed to uplift and bring forth inspiration to talented, young women in India and encourage them to become the next generation of women in leadership roles.
