Milind Soman at Walking Warriors- The Women of Today; Joint Initiative of JW Marriott Kolkata and Pinkathon



Presented by JW Marriott Kolkata, in accordance with the spirit of Pinkathon, “Walking Warriors- The Women of Today” was fashioned on the premise that a perfect woman is not someone who has the perfect body, but one who motivated and is aware of herself. Women are the key to a healthier and fitter society.  JW Marriott Kolkata and Pinkathon joined hands to curate this event, because of the similarity of their thoughts on woman achievers and the indomitable spirit of women.


JW Marriott Kolkata, the first JW Marriott of the East, has always supported and promoted woman empowerment. JW Marriott have an all-woman front office team. The HR Department, Admin office, Finance Department, Housekeeping, Bakery and Engineering Department also have a strong woman force. Ranju Alex, General Manager- JW Marriott Kolkata & MPVP East, is a fore-runner in Woman Empowerment, and associating with any women’s cause comes naturally to her.

The Pinkathon is India’s biggest women’s run, founded by Milind Soman and Reema Sanghavi. Organized by the United Sisters Foundation, the purpose is getting more and more women to adopt a fitter lifestyle for themselves and their families.
