Elaborating on how the channel consistently gives centre stage to low-profile women doing business and boosting their reach, Chopra says, “We have been at the forefront of bringing stories, sharing network access and opportunities with women through the SheThePeople network. This year, we’re putting a spotlight on the idea of #MakeSmallStrong. We talk about how small businesses can be supported. DWA doesn’t just celebrate these women but also encourages everyone to buy small.”
