Giving Back with Coffee O' Clock
Giving back is one of the core pillars of #PowerWomen. We collaborate with institutions and other partners to ensure that we we do our part in giving back. We support the women in our community in moving the needle and making a difference. We have hosted coffee sessions for young aspiring women to create awareness and confidence in choosing career paths and excelling in them. The women in our network share their journeys, learnings and bring in their expertise to help shape the journeys of young men and women. To do our bit in moving the needle, we have partnered with Women in Management - IIM Kozhikode to launch coffee chats to support women students. As part of the program, #PowerWomen members offer mentorship and guidance to young aspiring leaders of tomorrow. We kicked off with a coffee chat on careers in consulting.

Scholarships for Women in Governance
As part of our Personal Advisory Boards program, we have announced and given scholarships to women aspiring to have careers in governance and making a difference to peoples lives. We will continue doing our bit in bringing balance and equality to the world.
We are honoured and proud to offer scholarships to women leaders aspiring to join politics.
India's record of women in politics and governance remains dismal.
-If we were to line up every single woman who has ever been elected to the Lok Sabha, from the beginning of time, we won’t even fill one. There are not 543 women political leaders.
-50% of India’s population are women, 50% of electorate are women. The Indian constitution gives us equal rights to vote and contest. 70 years after a democratic republic, we have only ~14% women in Parliament.
-A UN study for 10 years across 4000+ constituencies has shown that women MLA led constituencies, not just local bodies, have experienced higher economic growth by 15% points and helped raise the GDP of India by 1.8% more per year.
We are excited to announce two full scholarships to support women with political aspirations for our #PersonalAdvisoryBoards program.
*We do not support any political party or have any political affiliations, we only support equal representation.
