About the Event

The event was for the launch of ISST’s recent study, Beyond the Norm: Skilling of Non-traditional Livelihoods for Women in Achieving WEE. The day-long event began with the report launch by Ms. Sarojini G.

The group was actively engaged through Q&A sessions and roundtable discussions where they shared their experiences of working on the subject and also suggested possible ways of taking the research forward.
