Will present the Keynote address at the 2015 GSC 3S Awards that Empower Ceremony on September 16th at the United Nations.
“We were extremely proud and happy to have been nominated for the People;s Choice Award in 2013. Winning it was ultra special since we had to compete with equally great and inspiring initiatives across the globe. GSC gave us a niche platform to have us heard and showcase all the good work that we are doing on the ground especially on women empowerment. We couldn’t have asked for a better audience at the Polish embassy in Oct 2013, rubbing shoulders with eminent scholars and who’s who of the outsourcing industry. This was easily one of the highest points in all our careers at JSW Foundation.”
“3S Awards to Vindhya was just not another award which is a recognition… GS Council starts the relationship after the award and it opened a complete new dimension to Vindhya post the recognition. Boot camp was an enabler which to our knowledge is not done by any other body and it immensely benefitted to us beyond explanation. I wish all the best for the participants and benefit immensely from the company of GS Council.”
