PinkDesk is a social networking platform designed exclusively for women. The motive is to empower women through an exchange of knowledge and valuable Information which would be streamlined to provide various channels for growth and upliftment. We at PinkDesk are dedicated to helping women find their niche and evolve in their fields of interest. The versatility of a woman and her ease to settle in different roles at different stages of life makes this world a vibrant place however while juggling between different roles and blending in the background to provide a whiteboard for others to paint their worlds, she often loses an identity of her own. We believe in tapping the immense potential and knowledge base held by women and using it to leverage the position of women in the society.
The women employment rate in India stands at a meager 27% and it's all the more shocking that despite a steady rise in the literacy rate, the women employment rate continues to decline in the previous years. Considering that women have a more demanding personal life, there is a lack of good opportunities for women which facilitate them to balance their personal and work life. Women from rural India are still deprived of benefits of Information technology and continue to be disconnected from the world. We pledge to constantly work towards better socioeconomic conditions for women and bring about a change in how women feel about themselves.
Everything we do is fueled by our vision to become the driving force behind leveraging women growth through the rise of women entrepreneurship, employment and awareness. Although a bit far fetched but certainly not a fairy tale!
