The Economic Times, India's largest business daily, is proud to unveil the country's biggest platform for a constructive dialogue on the state of women in India. Partnered by Facebook, The Economic Times Women's Forum will see over 50 international and Indian speakers come together for a day to deliberate on more than 12 areas of focus. These range from gender diversity in boardrooms to parliaments; enhancing women's participation in the workforce to breaking the proverbial glass ceiling; to women in sports, start-ups, civic society and performing arts. The single-minded objective: how can we unleash the power of half a billion women in this country? The Forum will be held in Mumbai on Friday, 16 March 2018. And like our speakers, the audience will be carefully curated by the newspaper's editorial staff. Invites will open shortly while the communication kicks off today with the Half-a-Billion Debates. The Debates seek to involve wider, societal participation on issues that concern us all. Here's a sample. How did women's participation in the Indian workforce drop to 27% from 35% a decade ago? Why has India slipped 20 places in the World Economic Forum Gender Gap Index to 108 (out of 144 countries)? Why are only eight of the BSE 500 companies led by women? Why is the representation of women students in the top 6 IIMs barely a quarter? Why are women still not given a permanent-commission in the Indian Army (outside of legal and education streams)?Join us as we bring together the finest doers and the craziest dreamers on a single and diverse platform at The Economic Times Women's Forum. Featuring keynote conversations, panel discussions, one-on-one interviews, interstitial spotlights and entertainment, The Economic Times Women's Forum is not a talk shop but a fast-paced multimedia pageant. A platform for dialogue, learning, networking and empowering women to write the next chapter of India's growth story. · Website: www.etwomensforum.com · Facebook: www.facebook.com/myETpaper/ · Twitter: @ETWomensForum.

Delhi, 15 April 2017 BJP has made tremendous electoral progress over the past three years. With government formation in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Jharkhand and impressive strides in Jammu & Kashmir and Maharashtra, it has more than compensated for the misses in Bihar, Punjab and Delhi. With the BJP gaining ground in West Bengal, Goa and Himachal Pradesh, it seems that the country is set for a saffron sweep like never before. Even in Bihar, with cracks appearing within the ruling mahagathbandhan between Lalu Prasad Yadav-led Rashtriya Janata Dal and Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United), BJP is making up for lost ground. In its 16th April 2017 issue, The Economic Times Magazine brings you the possible roadmap that BJP will take for the nine non-BJP ruled states including Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, where it is an ally, and BJP-ruled Gujarat where elections are due in December.

Delhi, 31 March 2017 A person can go days without food, but cannot survive for long without water, hence water is known as the “elixir of life”. In India water is a precious but dwindling resource. As the winters get shorter and the summers hotter, a stark reality comes to light. India cannot forecast its future or current water supply, due to very little or no data being available to Indian Hydrologists. In 2009, McKinsey published a report on global water which said that India would be able meet only half of its water demand by 2030. India’s hydrologists, on the other hand, do not quite foresee such a dire situation. Not because they think that the future is good, but because they don’t know. In its 2nd April 2017 issue, The Economic Times Magazine takes a frightening look at the fast growing water shortage and our country’s complete inability to forecast its future water budget.
