For women, apparel manufacturing, design etc are some of the best fitting jobs. There is visible recognition of women’s contribution in the apparel/fashion/retail sectors and ATDC encourages women to take up the apparel training as a career option making every effort to nurture their talent, skills and dedication," said Dr Darlie Koshy, DG & CEO-ATDC. "We are committed to train more women for their skill development so that they can earn while improving families’ well-being and this encourages us," added Koshy. ATDC was awarded at the summit-cum-awards on Skilling India-From Skills to Prosperity organised by Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India in New Delhi.
