The panelists discussed issues related to women working in various environments and how they can overcome difficult situations to achieve their aspirations. A variety of topics were discussed ranging from equal pay, self defense, gender norms and the need to stand up against any discrimination they face.

Another feather was attached to the legacy of CLIMB DTU by successfully conducting a women’s conclave, an informative session which helped young college girls to be inspired by these path breaking women who carved their place in various fields. By conducting these events, CLIMB DTU wishes to encourage girls to become self sufficient individuals. The personal experiences and the journeys of the successful ladies was a learning curve for all the audience present at the event and the discussion of various issues faced by the women in the society got the audience talking on important issues thereby fulfilling one of the main aims of CLIMB DTU.
