- About FLO
It’s a new beginning and let us embrace it with all our heart! I consider it a privilege to be the chairperson of YFLO for the year 2016-17. Being at the helm of one of the leading women organisations of Kolkata, I understand my responsibility and aspire to live up to it with energy and vigor. I welcome you all to work as a team and make a difference!
In this one year I intend to be instrumental in bringing in change by making a difference in the lives we touch. My calendar will be marked with a string of events aiming to benefit, enlighten, inspire and motivate our members in diverse ways. I aspire to bring in an array of programmes, which will be unique in theme, content, pattern and format. From quiz shows to culinary workshops, from serious talk forums to fun games and from awareness to ideation – the 2016-17 YFLO calendar will be a stimulating and dynamic one.
My theme for the year is ‘Create’. Using Origami elements as part of the logo, it represents the ancient art of Japan, which with folds creates a perfect 3D model from flat paper, symbolising perfection from their Zen culture. Just like that with each event I want women to feel empowered and add newer dimensions to their lives enabling them to CREATE their own masterpiece in life.
I plan to host one or two events each month where reputed and noted personalities, especially women, from all walks of life will be present to share their experiences, views and opinions. My intention will be to bring in novelty, originality and uniqueness to the calendar while the orientation will be to facilitate women empowerment and further the cause of women power.
2016-17 will be a year of inspiration and innovation in both the traditional and the avant-garde. I look forward to your continued support in the form of ideas, addition of new members and above all participation.
Together let’s make it an exciting, fun filled and happening year!
Chairperson, YFLO Kolkata
