She Leads, a new programme aiming at improving female empowerment, has launched in Chennai.

The programme is a unique leadership initiative for women, aiming to inspire more women into effective roles in sectors such as business, politics and education.

Launched by the British Deputy High Commissioner, Women of Worth (WOW) and the Madras Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI), She Leads will identify ten women chosen through a social media contest series.

The top ten winners will be provided with opportunities to meet leaders from around the world; will be invited to attend high profile events; will be part of the final event where the winners will be recognised; and receive access guidance for the Chevening Scholarship.

The programme is open to graduate and post-graduate students from across India, between 18 to 24 years old.

Bharat Joshi, deputy high commissioner said, “She Leads is about identifying and inspiring the next generation of women leaders and will target thousands of women between the ages of 18-24 across India, starting from Chennai.”

“We are excited to be part of a campaign that will raise awareness on the gender equality gap and also recognise young women with the potential for leadership.”

Tammy Sandhu, programme leader said, “They will go through a tailored Leadership Mentoring Training Programme that will give them access to high profile events at the High Commission and MCCI, and guidance for prestigious fellowships such as Chevening Scholarships as well.”

“The initial programme will be for six months, after which they will still be given support if required and access to any future programmes that may help in their development.”
