Gurgaon: In an endeavor to create awareness about women empowerment, Starex University celebrated International Women's Day on the campus today.
The event felicitated prominent women from nearby rural areas who have made a valuable contribution to society. The event also held a special session to make women aware of their safety.
On this occasion, Dr. Ashok Diwakar, Vice Chancellor, Starex University said, In the current scenario, women are at par with men in all spheres of life. We, at Starex University, have given employment to highly qualiﬁed women from a rural background so that they can set themselves as an inspiration to other women." He further added that in the history of India, women had always been given high stature and due respect, but things had changed with time. "We should collective work towards the empowerment of women each and every single day,” he further said.
