About IWN Maharashtra

Indian Women Network - Western Region was launched on 7 March 2014, Mumbai. Through IWN, we hope to provide a platform to discuss issues, opportunities at their work places and learn from each other’s experiences. This network is also extended to students of final year graduation, post-graduation and PhD, to guide and provide them with an opportunity to be mentored by experienced professionals.

IWN WR actively engages with members through webinars, workshops, seminars and in house sessions on Financial Planning, Legal, self-defence, POSH Session, health and wellbeing and building skills and many more topics.

Nearly 50% of women fall off the work force between the junior to middle management levels across the board and the reasons are manifold. To address this ‘Leaky Pipeline’ CII WR IWN unveiled an ambitious program ‘100 Hours of Change’ – as an attempt to create the biggest pool of women mentors who can help students and other women rise to their full potential in their careers.
