International Women’s Day (IWD) was celebrated with much fanfare worldwide. L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited (L&TMRHL) also participated in the celebrations by organising a series of activities at its head office and at various metro stations.
The activities at L&TMRHL head office included cake-cutting, cultural performances and fun games aligned to this year’s IWD theme #EmbraceEquity.
Over 100 women employees, loco pilots, and support staff (housekeeping & security) participated in the activities at the head office and at stations. As a gesture of appreciation and gratitude towards their contributions to the business, L&TMRHL authorities presented gifts to them. This apart, chocolates were distributed to women passengers.
Taking forward the spirit of women empowerment, L&TMRHL played the role of smart mobility partner for Business Women Expo 2023 (BWE 2023) – a three-day event hosted at Hyderabad’s HITEX International Convention & Exhibition Centre from 10 March.
Aimed at helping women participants in their professional journey, the expo was conceptualised to connect the attendees with potential business opportunities, help them carve out new growth paths, and move to the next level and beyond.
The expo followed D2C, B2C and B2B formats, with the participation of direct retail buyers, aspiring women entrepreneurs, young professionals, homemakers, home-preneurs, and buyers from PSUs, large corporates, facility managers, dealers, institutional buyers, and HNIs.
