We live in a digital world where right from dating to grocery shopping, everything is done online. Today, one does not have a pet name but surely does have a unique domain name. And being on Facebook validates as an identity proof.
India has more than 300 million users in India out of which only 30% of the total users are women. But these trends are growing as digital India is empowering women with various programmes to e-educate women and get them online. With the current mission of the Government of India to make 240 million people digitally literate, the primary beneficiaries are set to be women. Nearly 50 million women will be online in India by year-end which is a strong number.
Women are the force behind many leading digital companies, websites, Apps and unique social media content. A woman today can manage household chores and yet start a business online.
Digital India is making women independent in many ways and the potential to rethink their identities, the potential to bring about a powerful transformation in women is emerging.
Here’s an effort that seeks to celebrate women in the digital world. It’s an effort to encourage and motivate the digital women in our country by recognising and rewarding the work done. Welcome to the #DigitalWomenAwards. As digital empowers women, here’s a special platform to celebrate that success and share it with others to multiply its impact. These awards recognise talent, entrepreneurship, innovation and creation among women in the digital sphere.
Here the ‘Dot’ is at the centre of it all. The Dot is the centre of all existence. It is considered the point at which creation began and may become unity. It’s the symbol of cosmos. Light years and evolution have only empowered it further. It’s now not just our past, our present but also our future and we at SheThePeople.TV believe the Future is Female.
The internet and app universe is ushering in a new era of progress, and is giving a foundation to digitized India. From new opportunities, startup blood is marshalling our new way of life, even the Internet of Everything. These awards are for women who are part of that journey.
It consists of wide award categories like Leadership, Disruption, Marketing, Social Impact, e-Commerce and Content Creation.
Any woman who is an owner, founder, CEO of an organisation engaged in digital or online businesses, communities or applications can apply for these awards.
What makes this award even more special is the jury. It consists of renowned names like Mohandas Pai, the Chairman of Manipal University and formerly with Infosys. He is in company of some of the best women talent from within India – Ankhi Das of Facebook, Deepali Naair of Mahindra Holidays, Akila Urankar of Business Standard and Meenu Handa of Amazon India.
