After a very successful maiden event, This is Dhaka (TID) returned with their second event, “TID Social Presents Empowered Women’s Night.” The occasion was co-Sponsored by Green Delta Insurance. The aim of the event was to start a dialogue between the empowered women of Dhaka so that they can generate ideas which will help other women.
The program included women from all spheres and walks of life who came together under one roof to share stories regarding their struggles, triumphs and milestones. Invitees included an eclectic mix of women from the fields of banking, education, fashion, finance, law, and so on. It served as a great display of the progress and power of women in Dhaka.
In her speech, one of the key speakers, Farzana Choudhury, Managing Director and CEO of
Green Delta Insurance, articulated how she paved her niche in a field dominated by men and declared how proud she was of the progress that women have made in various fields. Prof. Dr. Eaysmin Ara Lekha, Founder Vice-Chairman of the Board and Pro Vice Chancellor of Uttara University, shared a rather compelling speech depicting her dedication towards her career goals and education while balancing her married life with two young children. Munia Chowdhury, talented homemaker and writer, highlighted how the contribution of a homemaker often goes unnoticed and undermined but what an essential, integral and challenging role it actually is.
Shedding some light on the event, Dilruba Chowdhury, Director, East Coast Group, stated “I love the fact that TID used the term Empowered Women instead of Women Empowerment. This just shows how they are operating and thinking way ahead of their time.”
Founder and CEO of TID, Erfanul Haque, also Director at Ershad Security and Executive Director at Varosha Group of Industries, spoke of the influence of powerful women in his life and promised to organize more events under the banner of TID in his initiative to connect and unite Dhaka.
