Elaborating on the occasion, Chandra Bhushan Chakraborty, Vice President, East Region, Amway
India said, “We firmly believe that women play an intrinsic role as powerful catalyst for change. The
potential is immense, and we, at Amway, have been championing women entrepreneurship over the
years by providing equal business opportunity with regular programs and interventions to support
business growth. Honoring women and their contribution, we are celebrating March, as women’s month.
As a part of the celebrations, we have conceptualized programs to enhance the competencies of our
women direct sellers, who are selected based on their potential and commitment to their business. I
believe supporting one woman in her entrepreneurial journey can help not only a generation, but an entire
nation to thrive.”
Amway is an equal opportunity player and has been working to strengthen its contribution towards
women entrepreneurship in India. The company is working towards accelerating women’s growth, which
will provide the much-needed impetus to India’s growth story. As per IMF, if all the working-age women
enter the workforce, ‘the world’s largest democracy will be 27% richer. A multi-stakeholder approach is
crucial in this scenario to create a comprehensive support system that promotes and motivate women in
the workforce.
