On the occasion of International Women's Day, HDFC Bank conducted an interactive workshop for its women employees in Goa. Titled ‘sexual harassment at workplace and safety of women and legal safeguards,' the workshop was conducted in the presence of Legal Service committee Goa, chief guest and senior judge North Goa women's cell Pooja Kavlekar.

During the fun and interactive workshop, women were taught simple self-defence techniques. The workshop also involved a discussion on overcoming domestic violence, sexual harassment at workplace, how women can seek legal aid, and precautions women can take. All the attendees were presented with roses.

HDFC Bank empowers women, including its employees through various initiatives. The bank has empowered over 80 lakh women at the bottom of the pyramid across 27 states of India through its Sustainable Livelihood Initiative, thereby improving the lives of over 3.2 crore Indians. Through its CSR programmes, the bank has constructed over 11,000 individual toilets, over 5,500 schools toilets and sanitation facilities to promote good hygiene practices and help girls continue their education.

“International Women's Day is of course a day to celebrate the contribution women make to our daily lives. At HDFC Bank, we believe that the best way to celebrate women is by empowering them. This is embedded in our DNA and it is something that we do through the year. Our commitment is best captured by the fact that we have not outsourced our operations but have over 8,000 dedicated employees who are steadfast in their commitment to this cause,” said head – Sustainable Livelihood Initiative, HDFC Bank Manohara Raj.
