Twitter To Celebrate International Women’s Day at FICCI FRAMES

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Twitter is hosting a panel of women leaders at FICCI FRAMES (@FICCI_India) on 5 March to discuss women empowerment in the digital era, the rise of women movements, and how the community can support the development of more women leaders in the future.

Led by Maya Hari (@maya_hari), Managing Director of Asia Pacific at Twitter, who will be moderating the session, the panel will feature Director of Lipstick Under My Burkha, Alankrita Shrivastava (@Alankrita601); Actor and entrepreneur Gul Panag (@GulPanag); Author of Face at the window Kiran Manral (@KiranManral); Executive Editor of Rolling Stones India, Nirmika Singh (@nirmika); and film producer and founder of IconicBot, Vishakha Singh (@vishakhasingh55).

Twitter will live broadcast the session from @TwitterIndia and @FICCI_India. The live stream will be available for free to logged-in and logged-out users on Twitter and connected devices globally. People will be able to watch the panel discussion and join the conversation to celebrate women empowerment with the hashtag #SheInspiresMe.

"Twitter is the best place to see what’s happening around the world and to talk about it. In celebration of International Women’s Day, Twitter is launching a month-long celebration to recognize inspirational women on and off Twitter, starting with FICCI FRAMES in India," said Maya Hari, Managing Director of Asia Pacific, Twitter. "We are excited to amplify the stories of these women who are strong, powerful, and inspirational to all and share them around the world with live streaming on Twitter."

“FICCI FRAMES, Asia’s largest convention on the business of Media & Entertainment, is proud to be associated with Twitter in its campaign on women’s day. FICCI has always been an active supporter of initiatives taken for women leadership. Issues faced by women in Media & Entertainment industry have been a center stage topic of discussion in FRAMES over the years. With Twitter & FICCI FRAMES coming together in this edition of FICCI FRAMES, it would help further delving deep into & highlighting the issues of women leadership in this digital era.” said Dr Sanjaya Baru, Secretary General of FICCI.

In the past year, Twitter has developed several initiatives in support of women movements in India and globally, including #PositionOfStrength. The #PositionOfStrength initiative which started first in India, is a movement to engage and empower women online while educating them on how to use Twitter as a platform to build a profile, have a voice, and create their own unique and influential personal brands. The initiative began in March 2015 for women to learn how to use the platform safely with confidence, and to network with other career-minded women.
