Kochi: Crossing the boundaries, Prayaana is all set to host its first international edition of C2C (Come Back 2 Career) Meet at Hotel Calicut Paragon, Al Karama, Dubai on September 28.
Elated at the upcoming event, Chandra Vadhana R, CEO, Prayaana Labs, said, "We get a lot of enquiries from women in the Gulf countries through our Facebook page asking whether they can get Prayaana's career support. That’s how I understood that such support was very much needed in that region. Especially for those women who got settled there with their husbands. These women end up quitting their profession due to many reasons. Despite having skills, they lack avenues to build a career of their choice again. Hence, we decided to organise this event in Dubai, albeit on a small scale.”
In association with Cosmopolitan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI), Prayaana has lined up a good panel of speakers to inspire and provide guidance to the participants. Dr. Ruchi Dass, Executive Director, Health Cursor Consulting Group, Dubai; Sabrina Suares, Client Director, Profusion, Dubai and Naveen Shetty, HR Specialist, Electronic Government Authority, RAK-UAE are among the speakers who will be taking part in the event.
As in the previous editions, this international edition will also have special sessions on career orientation conducted by career mentors, startup ideas and home-based business opportunities for women. A regional Prayaana Hub is also being planned at the venue.
The entry to the C2C Meet is free. However, the available number of seats is limited. Women who wish to participate in the event can register their names by either visiting www.prayaana.org or www.facebook.com/prayaanalabs.
