Outlook Speakout has emerged as a lively platform, for the finest minds and brightest ideas, ­dictated by the optimism and anxieties of our times, says Indranil Roy, Chief Executive Officer, The Outlook Group.

Speaking at the event, Indranil Roy explained The Outlook Group's vision of encouraging women who contribute to make the life of others a little better, a little safer. 

Here is the full text of his speech:

Ladies and Gentlemen: 

Good Evening, and welcome to the third edition of Outlook Speakout.

For the last 24 years, the Outlook Group has enjoyed a great reputation in the world of Indian journalism. 

In the last three years, we have tried to make Outlook SpeakOut an outspoken extension of the magazine, on stage.

I must say, we have found our corner and we are proud of it.

Outlook Speakout has emerged as a lively platform, for the finest minds and brightest ideas, ­dictated by the optimism and anxieties of our times. 

In the last few years, sexual assault and women’s empowerment movements have upended public conversation about women’s issues in India and the world.

Women are waging a battle to reclaim their future: public space to workplace, the freedom to wear anything, do anything, be anything.

And people have started to listen, to the obstacles women encounter in their daily lives, both personal and professional.

As one of the most credible media groups in India, Outlook has shined a light on women’s anger and efforts to get their voices off the ground—  #HappyToBleed or #MeToo.

We recognise and respect women’s demand for a safe world. Safe from taboo, stigma, shame, ill-health, prejudice, fear and violence. 

Our theme today is: Women’s Vision 2022: What Women Want—Reclaiming The Narrative.

In its scope, it is a continuation, or the logical extension, of last year’s theme: Women Empowerment. As in the past…. we have a refreshing galaxy of minds today…… to debate openly and thoroughly the great issue of the day. 

While, Indian women are being felicitated, celebrated and awarded like never before by political parties and media of all stripes, The Outlook Group doesn’t want to honour just a handful of powerful women.

We believe in talking about their problems and encourage women who contribute—in ways big and small—to making the life of others a little better, a little safer. 

I thank you all for joining us in our endeavour to make a difference.
