On this occasion Shri Behera said, “We are celebrating International Women’s Day to honour the achievements of women in various fields and I appreciate everyone present here to be a part of the Women and the Future of Work conclave. Gender equality starts at home. Parents are at the front lines of most significant influence on gender stereotypes for their children. And Gender sensitization is a must in schools, colleges and among corporate. Government also has gender equality policies but involvement of both male and female is needed in the formulation of these policies. Common ethical issues and economic insecurity in workplace must be reported to authorities and brought to light. On Future of Work- Artificial intelligence or machine learning that promotes industrial revolution is offering increase in future productivity, business output and revenue to the corporate houses that are adapting these techs. In these areas, female needs to be skilled, tech savvy and involved so as to be an integral part of the futuristic development.”
On this occasion Shri Amitabh Das said “Our Odisha is filled with exceptional talent. All over India and specially in IT Sector, Odiyas have done exceptionally well.
