ASSOCHAM women’s wing opens Hyderabad chapter

Making its foray into south India, the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) Ladies League (ALL), the women's wing of industry chamber has opened its Hyderabad chapter. ALL hopes that this would emerge as the hub of women's empowerment in south India.

This is the fifth chapter of ALL in the country and the 10th in the world. The global network of women already has chapters in Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Ludhiana. It also has international chapters in Colombo (Sri Lanka), Islamabad (Pakistan), Port Louis (Mauritius), Vancouver (Canada), Washington and New York (US).

“Under the ALL network women were connecting and collaborating to create a world where they can be safe and strong,” Harbeen Arora, Global Chairperson, ASSOCHAM, told reporters on Monday.

She said they plan to open 10 more chapters this year. Two chapters would soon be launched in Dallas and Los Angeles, US.

Suman Gahlot, General Manager of Taj Deccan, a Taj Group of Hotels entity, will be the chairperson of the Hyderabad chapter.

ALL, whose members include fashion designer Ritu Beri and business icon Kiran Majumdar Shaw, plans to have 20,000 members this year. Arora said it would rope in women and daughters of ASSOCHAM members. The industry chamber has 4.4 million members.

With 30 committees in various sectors, ALL offers global networking and linkage for any initiative aimed at helping women.

The women's league has helped 500 girls educated on scholarships find placements in industry. It is also collaborating with non-governmental organisations working in various areas of women empowerment.
