Women’s Day celebration at Godrej  

International women’s day was celebrated at Godrej One, with a big bang. Our theme for this year was to challenge gender stereotypes stigma that women face at the workplace and the other theme was to encourage body positivity. Various stalls were arranged by our women entrepreneurs. At a stall arranged by our Salon-I beautypreneurs from Mumbai and Pune, many women were given stylish nail art. Our beautypreneurs spirits were raised when our special guests like Dipika Kumar - an archer who ranks no. 7 in the world, Snigdha Poonam – author and national affairs writer for Hindustan Times and our own dear Nisa Godrej visited them.

300 women visited our stall and had a blast of a time, especially at our interactive stalls, which had items such as books, handicraft pieces, toys, live portraits and a photo booth. Along with our beautypreneurs, our partners NGOs, who have benefitted from our life skills and financial literacy modules, had also arranged stalls mostly to display their work. One such NGO arranged a stall, where a 5 minutes portrait painting session was conducted displaying the women in fun pose that actually represented the women’s day symbol. These paintings proved to be an excellent take-aways gift for a few of our lucky draw winners. 5 minutes portrait painting was such a hit that some of our Salon-I students volunteered for it, as they were interested in the craft.

Additionally, we had arranged an interactive corner that displayed our life skills module, my journey and my beauty spa app. Our Salon-I student managed this corner, engaged with visitors, and discussed these programs at length.

Each Beautypreneur was assisted by two Salon-I students at the stall, which gave the students an excellent opportunity to learn, as well as assist the Beautypreneur while the actual service was being done. They had plenty of opportunities during this process to interact and resolve their queries.
