Annual Business Summit 2020

2020 has not been an easy year for all of us. This year taught us many innovative ways of doing business and connecting with each other. We also realised the importance of going digital due to the pandemic and it multiplied our reach in the market and took the initiatives and businesses to a new level. Going Digital is the new mantra which 2020 has given us. RWS followed the the same global trend and worked hard in bringing the businesses and LGBT professionals together.

After successfully conducting many webinars, session and consultation with the community now we are summarising the efforts we made in 2020 in the form of a digital annual business summit. This will not just be for summarising our 2020 achievements but it will also pave our way forward to 2021. This summit will showcase our 2020 timeline along with various sessions from learned people of their respective field.

The purpose of this annual summit is to make RWS a stronger brand and reach out to masses to showcase and shout out that how successfully we have build a wonderful platform for LGBT entrepreneurs of India and created avenues for LGBT professionals by connecting them to various corporates. This annual summit will also tell our audience about our way forward and future planning of RWS.
