FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO) is a national body with the prime objective of women empowerment through the promotion of entrepreneurship and managerial excellence.

Established in 1983, FLO is a division of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), which is the apex body of Industry and Chambers of Commerce in India.

Over the last 29 years of FLO’s existence it has grown as an organization and today it is one of the most prestigious pan-India business organizations with 10 chapters and nearly 3200 members across India, committed to working towards women empowerment through business women development and capacity building initiatives besides other programmes.

60% of India’s population is younger than 30 years. This generation, through cooperation, teamwork, group consciousness, world class education is one the core strengths of India and FLO realizing this opportunity has initiated a Young FLO wing to sustain and harness this demographic dividend into economic growth for the future. Young FLO (YFLO) was launched in 2004. The membership is open for women aged 20-39 years.

FLO runs a Business Consultancy Cell in Delhi for potential women and men entrepreneurs to provide consultancy services and extend help in setting up their units and also provide appropriate guidance during the running of their units.

Besides a wide range of other activities, FLO also takes and receives delegations abroad to promote bilateral trade, internationalism and fellowship among women.
