Bhagyashree organized, coordinated, and executed Bharathi, and event aimed at creating awareness about women empowerment and safeguarding women's livelihoods.  At the event was a panel session that consisted of a women lawyers, doctors, entrepreneurs, NGO heads, police members, and heads of various women's organizations.  Among the panel members included several notable figures such as Dr. Shantbai Bhoomreddi, Vijayaklakshmi Angadi (lawyer), PSI Krishnaveni, Shravani Hagargi (CEO of Safe Hands 24x7), and Jayashri Hiremath (NGO worker).  The panel spoke about issues in women's safety, as well as the importance for women to empower themselves and improve their status in society.  In addition, plans were made to appeal to various administrative bodies in order to provide a 24x7 helpline to women in the city.  

Around 200 guests attended the event and benefitted from the inspiration, motivation, and guidance provided by the panel speakers.  Bhagyashree says that after the event, many women felt very empowered, and approached her with ideas of starting and managing their own businesses.
