Going an extra mile to make the women staff at The Imperial feel safe and secure in the city, The Imperial had organised a 'Self Defense' workshop in August 2019 and its Grand finale was conducted on September 9, at The Royal Ballroom, The Imperial.

The aim of this workshop was to demonstrate the techniques taught by the Delhi Police officials and to empower women with essential skills to handle untoward situations and instill confidence for safeguarding themselves at anytime, anywhere.

The action- packed afternoon which culminated with yet another session of self defense training organised for 20 days, saw the presence of senior police officials including the Chief Guest – Dr Eish Singhal IPS-DCP, New Delhi District; Additional DCP Deepak Yadav, New Delhi District; ACP Akhilesh Yadav, CP Area; ACP Shashi Bala Kaushik, Child and Women division of Delhi Police; trainers from women's cell of Delhi police along with the senior management and associates of the hotel.

Vijay Wanchoo, Senior Executive Vice President and General Manager at The Imperial, sustaining the efforts for women safety and security for the third year said: "Women today constitute a considerable workforce in the service sector. This makes our role in ensuring their safety, critical. We had initiated this exclusive workshop with Delhi Police again this year to train women associates who have recently joined and have taken all the measures to boost the level of participation amongst them. Various techniques are taught by the officials to ensure their safety in the hour of need enabling them to handle any unpleasant situation".

"The self defense training has instilled strength to fight back and has made the lady associates aware of their capabilities and I am sure they are now better equipped to protect themselves in difficult and challenging situations," he further added.

Concluding the long-running workshop, the participants demonstrated their self defense learnings and techniques to handle situational attacks like hand holding, touching while travelling in bus, neck and knife attacks on women at the grand finale. The event culminated with the honouring of participants by Delhi Police and Wanchoo showed his gratitude towards Delhi Police by felicitating the officials present.
