Laadli has joined hands with IIT Bombay’s annual Science and Technology TECHFEST as a cause partner and has launched Roar – a nation-wide competition for the youth to use their creativity and intelligence to create awareness about violence against women and come up with college based programs to combat the same.

 

Various college activities are being organized to bring awareness and action through a series of tasks, which include creating a platform for candid discussions, coming up with innovative campaigns to address the issue at college level and making films of 100 seconds duration on the issue. The challenge for the film makers is to make a film without a female protagonist.

 

Roar serves to unite and strengthen voices speaking out for girls and women around the world. Around 3000 colleges from across India and other countries would be participating in the TechFest, which is one of the most prestigious tech feats in Asia.

 

Also , as part of Roar, Laadli is organizing a panel discussion on the theme “Where men are truly confident, women are valued” highlighting the changing dynamics of man-woman relationships in the 21st Century in India on 3rd January 2015, at IIT Powai, Mumbai at 1 pm. Some of the most high profile women and men would be participating in the discussion.

 

The Fest provides students from all over the world an opportunity to learn, experiment, show case, and implement ideas. Amratya Sen, Jocelyn Goldfein, Rakesh Sharma, Sir Venki Ramakrishnan, David J Griffiths, Sir Azhar Hussain  have been esteemed panelists at earlier festivals.
