Its primary objective is to ensure that gender considerations are mainstreamed into G20 discussions and translated into the G20 Leaders’ Declaration as policies and commitment that foster women’s economic empowerment. The vision is to create a world of equity, where every woman lives with dignity and to ensure an enabling environment and ecosystem for women to thrive, transcend and transform.
A seat of global learning, Apeejay Stya University (ASU) endeavours to bring about transformation of society through value-based education, man-making and nation-building by blending the dual identities of a technology and research-based university with a Liberal Arts institution. It provides a supportive and nurturing environment that nurtures each student to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Commenting on this tie-up, Dr Neha Berlia, said, “I am delighted to be part of the W20 Forum that aims to create an environment and ecosystem for women in India to thrive, transcend and transform. ASU is proud to be associated with the W20 forum as a knowledge partner and we aspire to create positive change in society on an individual and collective level through gender sensitisation and community service activities.”
