Taking the discussion on feminism and equality forward after the international furor created by a handful of women on Twitter over the inclusion of a man on our Women in Media panel at Social Media Week Bangalore, our Founder and President Marissa Bronfman wrote about the role of men in women’s empowerment in The Huffington Post.

In partnership with Nokia India, we recently hosted our first-ever digital contest, #ShesEmpowered, a unique window into the many ways Indians see women’s empowerment.
#ShesEmpowered was a creative platform on which fans and followers were able to share what women’s empowerment looked like through their eyes. Though we were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of tweets, it was the thoughtfulness and vision in each submission that made this contest so memorable.

Moxie Mentorship: Pairing India’s Talented Young Women With The Most Inspiring Female Leaders And InfluencersPosted by Team Moxie | Moxie Media Bangalore, Moxie Mentorship, Women in Media
Recognizing the total absence of a culture of mentorship for women in India, Moxie Media launched Moxie Mentorship, a mentorship program that connects India’s brightest young entrepreneurial women with the country’s most inspiring female leaders and influencers.
Moxie Mentorship is designed to pair passionate young women with Women in Media panelists for intimate one-on-one mentorships. The first program of its kind in India, Moxie Mentorship continues to grow, uniting women across cities and countries.
The latest edition of Moxie Media’s Women In Media Panel Series & Moxie Mentorship, in partnership with Nokia at Social Media Week Bangalore, is proud to be associated with the incredible global campaign Girl Rising.
In a world still dominated by regressive ideologies that banish the girl child from getting the same quality of life as the male child, this campaign aims to bridge the gender gap by empowering girls through education. In collaboration with Intel, CNN Films and others, Girl Rising is a series of advocacy trailers, behind-the-scenes videos and a documentary so impactful that this action campaign has already raised $2.1 million towards educating girls.
Moxie Media is thrilled to announce our partnership with Nokia for Women in Media and Moxie Mentorship at Social Media Week Bangalore 2014. Featuring executives from Nokia, Girl Rising and more, the third edition of our Women in Media panel promises to be the most inspiring one yet.
Stay tuned for all the details.
