15 October 2019
news and events

It is a known fact that women are playing a significant role in the development of our nation over the ages and in the emerging journey of “New India”, the women need to play a still major role. This has necessitated women in increasing numbers to take up professional and entrepreneurial roles often involving extensive interactions with their men counter-parts at the workplace. In this context, awareness about legal rights of both men and women are necessary to avoid sexual harassments at the workplace. Keeping this aspect in mind, “Women Empowerment Cell” of MATS Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship (MIME) organized an interactive workshop entitled “Ab Samjhuta Nahin” highlighting the role of awareness of legal rights in empowering the women at the workplace on 15 October 15 2019.

Ms Avneet Kaur, Campaign Manager of the CSR wing of ITC – Vivel Limited was the facilitator. She explained different aspects of the Indian Constitution and different judgements such as in Nirbhaya Case and regarding the Tripple Talak by the Supreme Court and their implications on strengthening the belief that no one should compromise on the dignity of the women. The facilitator illustrated with several examples about the right use of social media and electronic devices so that there would not be any probability of sexually demeaning behavior towards the women. The workshop also highlighted the essence of laws regarding women rights, relevant civil and criminal laws and their relationships with institutions, police and courts. The PGDM students of MIME, staff and the faculty members graced workshop.
