MasterG & Daughters

MasterG is the first all-women design and skill development ecosystem for the global apparel industry. They believe that they exist because there is disparity in women’s workforce participation in India. The organization aims to give tools to women to break out of patterns of exclusion and inequality in the industry and their lives. To achieve this they have built a resilient ecosystem and innovative training modules.When women learn pattern making with MasterG and Daughter’s, they break patterns of exclusion to claim independence and dignity as community leaders.
