This event will be an occasion to share ideas, impart knowledge and build collaborative partnerships to co-create change in our society lead by women.

Ashoka Changemakers, as world’s leading online platform for social entrepreneurs, has been working towards facilitating development of changemaking ecosystem. #ChangemakeHERS #SocEntSummit by @changemakers (twitter handle of Ashoka Changemakers) is an effort to establish a twitter forum for women changemakers to continue dialoguing and sharing their ideas, thoughts and impact throughout the year (using hashtag #ChangemakeHERS).

All the content aggregated during a month with hashtag #ChangemakeHERS will culminate into a blogpost on Best women changemaker twitter accounts, most popular tweets (with maximum retweets) & most regular twitter posts with #ChangemakeHERS hashtag will also be felicitated on ChangeWire. The top twitter participant of #ChangemakeHERS each month will be interviewed for Changemakers Blog and will win in-kind prizes.
