Women Welfare Committee of IIT Bhubaneswar organized Workshop on Rights of Working Women

  At present times, women employees are seen in almost every establishment. But the discrimination against women still exists in various forms, particularly in the workplace. Thus, it is important to make today's women aware of their rights, make them informative and empower them to live their lives with dignity. For the said purpose, Women's Welfare Committee of IIT Bhubaneswar had organized a session on " Rights of Working Women" on 22.11.2018.
   The speakers of the event were Adv. Namrata Chadha, a social activist and a member of Internal Complaint Committee, IIT Bhubaneswar and Adv. Snehanjali Mohanty who is a member of State Women's Commission. The session started with a brief information about Women's Welfare Committee by it's chairperson, Prof. Remya Neelancherry. The welcome address was given by our honourable Director- Prof. R V Rajakumar. Though the event mostly focused on faculties and staffs, few students were also present in the event. The discussion was not just limited to rights of working women but also on the rights of a child. The seminar was more of an interactive session where various situations were discussed, the precautions that can be taken, the various laws and rights of humans were informed.
