An Interaction with Prominent Women of Devbhoomi, Uttarakhand to Introduce FICCI Ladies Organisation at Dehradun
FLO is widening its reach to various regions across the nation and creating a niche as a pan- India organization for women empowerment. FLO currently has 13 chapters – Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow- Kanpur, Ludhiana, Mumbai, North East and Pune with its head office in Delhi.
FLO is now looking at making an addition to its chapters with the 14th chapter in Dehradun, the capital city of Uttarakhand. A young State formed in 2000, Uttarakhand has emerged as a significant destination for investments in manufacturing industry, tourism and education.
FLO President , Vasvi Bharat Ram said, “To accelerate women’s participation in the process of economic development, the first step is to develop and promote entrepreneurship among women and for this concerted effort is required from the industry, government and the society.”
“And the second and the most important step is for the women themselves to discover their talent and unleash the entrepreneur within. FLO plays a crucial tool in sensitising and educating the women, empowering them and bringing them to the forefront,” she added.
She added, “FLO endeavors to promote women entrepreneurs and professionals and assist women entrepreneurs to grow them professionally in the State and the launch of this Chapter will help bring existing entrepreneurs, potentials entrepreneurs and other professionals under the FLO umbrella. I look forward to work collectively towards nurturing the new chapter.
