LEADING THROUGH ADVERSITIES: WOMEN WILL CHANGE THE FUTURE OF INDIA
How are women being impacted by COVID-19, and how are they leading to address the challenges faced by others? To learn, The Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society is conducting a series of interviews with women entrepreneurs and ambassadors for women’s empowerment around the world.
These interviews are unveiling unique insights into the far-reaching impacts of Covid-19, and the diverse ways these inspiring women are responding to the crisis with leadership and innovation.
Anita Dongre, Founder, The House of Dongre
The Women’s Forum met with Anita Dongre, creator of The House of Dongre. One of the most successful fashion houses in India, it employs over 2,600 people directly and provides employment opportunities to thousands more. Anita has been a trailblazer at the forefront of Indian fashion for over 20 years, having recognised the need to create and cater to the fashion choices of an Indian woman at a time when few brands existed. For Anita, the business of fashion should be conducted the way it was always meant to be – looking towards the future, practicing and building processes that are sustainable, respectful of the people involved and environmentally conscious.
