Government think-tank NITI Aayog’s 15-year vision document has proposed key reforms to enable and encourage women’s workforce participation across sectors in India. This is in line with the sustainable development goals, particularly gender equality, whose adoption into policy-making is being steered by NITI Aayog, an official statement said. On the occasion of International Women’s Day 2017, NITI Aayog, in partnership with the UN in India and MyGov, presented the second edition of Women Transforming India, an online contest to celebrate women achievers, leaders and change makers from across the country, it added. This year, NITI Aayog has once again aimed to recognise those women in India’s workforce who are ‘breaking the glass ceiling’ and affecting positive change in their communities to further the Government of India’s mission of inclusive economic growth, the statement said.
