The 2022 Conference theme: Resilience and Reinvention will focus on Political Leadership, Corporate Culture, Diversity and Inclusion, Corporate Governance and empathy led Human Management. I think this is the first time a female centric conference will feature a conversation and debate on the topic of political leadership. I believe female leadership has to be pursued beyond the boardroom.” Dr. Segera further added that, “WIM is hoping to open more doors for Sri Lankan exporters and investors on a global platform, and also hopes to create a networking platform for young professionals seeking to gain international exposure and work experience. We sincerely hope Sri Lankan’s will take this opportunity to promote Sri Lanka and all that she has to offer to a wider global audience.”
