Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) through its contemporary and unique initiative, Women in TAAI and Travel (WITT), organized its first web workshop on Friday, 20th August. WITT aims to leverage the Indian travel and hospitality industry to empower women with the opportunity to fulfil their economic and individual potential while growing the sector.
Rolled out only last month, WITT’s voluntary membership reached a magical number of 300 within a month. Keeping in mind the issues and challenges faced by the women in the industry, WITT decided to organize its first web workshop on Wellness. The Guest of Honour, for the event, was Dr. Manjari Chandra.
Initiating the Coffee Conversation, Mrs. Jyoti Mayal, President, WITT & TAAI welcomed Dr. Chandra and other participants and apprised them about the purpose of organizing the web workshop. Mrs. Mayal said that the Women is a full Circle, within her is the power to create, nurture, and transform. She also said that Wellness could be related to Physical, Spiritual, Social, Occupational, Cultural etc. And, hence, we should remember that wellness is not simply the absence of illness or stress, but a broad practice of internal and external behaviours even when experiencing challenges, she added.
Dr. Chandra, who is a renowned Functional Nutritionist, Wellness Coach, Speaker and Author of the Book “Eat Up Clean Up”; has worked for leading hospitals of India, namely Max Healthcare, Manipal Hospitals, Columbia Asia etc. Addressing the attendees, Dr. Chandra gave her insights and solutions to the modern day & post covid issues being faced by the women in the industry. She emphasised on the need of reducing inflammation and living a healthy life. For beginners, Dr. Chandra advised the need to reduce weight, avoid all toxins, get adequate sleep, and practise gratitude and forgiveness.
Being the first of its kind under the banner of WITT, participants were really delighted to attend and expressed their gratitude to the entire team of WITT.
Ms. Tina Kanuga, Member, TAAI and Devika Jeet, Chief Executive of WITT moderated the workshop and thanked the attendees.
