Universe to Equiverse: Start the Ripple

The universe has evolved dramatically in terms of intellectual, material and physical prosperity. Sadly, the growth has not been balanced for all. Certain sections have gained far more than the others. The pandemic has just widened much of the existing gaps, particularly between genders.

How do we then build a new universe that is more equitable - an Equiverse?

This year we will explore how each of us can be change agents for such a world and every participant can be a ripple of change.

The conference “Universe to Equiverse - Start the Ripple ” endeavors to provide a platform for leaders across sectors and regions, engaged in empowering women to come and share their journeys and insights. We hope to build bridges between such leaders to increase the momentum of change.

It will showcase a new Equiverse that is possible, when we are in it together.
