NCW Chairperson launches Women Safety Handbook

New Delhi, Mar 13 (UNI) National Commission for Women(NCW) Chairperson Rekha Sharma on Wednesday launched a Women Safety Handbook here and said the aim of this book is to guide the growing urban workforce with a module that will bridge the safety issues that exist in the country.
Move-in-Sync Technology Solutions (MIS), India’s largest office commute platform, released the Women Safety Handbook for Women on the Move, in collaboration with the NCW.
Speaking on the handbook, the NCW Chairperson said, ''India is gradually evolving as more women have opened up about harassment they face without the fear of being stigmatized. Companies like Move-in-Sync have created a significant milestone in women safety for the benefit of women employees in India. The aim of this book is to guide the growing urban workforce with a module that will bridge the safety issues that exist in our country.''
She said employees’ today demand to not just facilitate a better work-life balance but also strengthen the Indian ecosystem with a better safety net for women.
''This book will provide the readers with ample value and guidance to enhance their confidence in the system of safe India for women. We believe that such collaborative efforts will inspire others to come forward and believe in the value of public-private partnership towards a national mandate. We believe in the safety agenda that has been carefully documented with MIS for working women in India,'' she added.
The event witnessed an insightful discussion between Ms Shaili Chopra, Founder SheThePeople, Ms Supreet Singh, Co-founder and COO Safecity and Ms Swati Rangachari, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer Sterlite Technologies.
In addition to its Chairperson, NCW was represented by Ms Meenakshi Gupta, Secretary, Ms Soso Shaiza, Member and Ms Shyamal Kunder, Member.

The Women’s safety handbook is developed as a manual for promoting a safe commute experience for women on the move.
The objective of the initiative is to equip women with the right knowledge on safety and boost their confidence.
Move-in-Sync recognizes its responsibility to provide a safe ride sharing experience and strives to contribute towards a safer environment for women across the country. It is designed as a vital document for Corporate India in the interest of its employees for reinforcing industry best practices and for internalizing adequate safety measures.

Speaking on the launch of the handbook, Deepesh Agarwal, Co-founder, and CEO of Move-in-Sync said, ''As CEO and Cofounder of Move-in-Sync, India’s largest office commute partner, I am happy that we have been able to integrate most of NASSCOM's guidelines into our safety features. As per a WHO study, 35 per cent of women globally undergo some form of abuse while commuting. This has triggered the need for alternate, responsible employee commute solutions. These solutions will ensure the transportation is safe and hassle-free for employees and economically viable for corporates.''
