  • Women empowerment campaign launched in Chicago
  • 150 people attended the campaign
  • The campaign was initiated by Indian women in Chicago

CHICAGO, IL, Dec 16, 2017: The Women’s Empowerment Campaign had a very successful media launch on December 9 at the Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows IL.

The event was attended by 150 people, including India’s Consul General in Chicago, Neeta Bhushan, and prominent business and community leaders.

The initiative is a collaboration between Bhushan and the principals of the campaign Rita Singh, Shital Daftari & Dr. Anuja Gupta, who are prominent businesswomen and community members in Chicagoland.

“It was a great idea of the founders to start a women’s empowerment group. It was much needed in Chicago & will go a long way” said Bhushan. The guests enjoyed a beautiful evening with the founders presenting their vision for the WE POWER campaign, presentation of their impressive team & entertainment by Ameya Dance Academy themed around women’s empowerment.

“Chicago needed a strong women’s group to represent the high level of success our community has seen in business, community service, arts & culture. The Women’s Empowerment Group has filled a huge gap & has great potential in Chicago & also nationally” added Bhushan.

The Campaign was designed to create the largest networking & empowerment platform for Indian women in Chicagoland.

“We wanted to form a group that showed the power of Indian women in Chicago & do something that made a positive impact in our community” said the founders.

The philosophy of the founders and leadership team was to build a powerful community of support for Indian women in Chicagoland through this platform. The group plans to celebrate Women’s Day annually as a gala event.

The group has had considerable recognition from the community so far. Many women have expressed an interest in joining the group. They have also received calls from Indian women outside of Chicagoland to join. Women leaders from the Indian community in Florida & New Jersey have expressed an interest in setting up sister organizations in their own town.

“The Indian women community has gotten to a level where we want to make a difference by supporting each other and elevating the status of the whole community” says Dr. Gupta. (IANS)
