8 th National Conference on “Diversity in Management – Development of Women Executives” (An exclusive programme for women executives) & PRESENTATION OF EXCELLENCE AWARDS FOR WOMEN – 2020
“Civilization of a society can be measured by the way they treat their women”
Substantial strides have been made by women in various spheres of life in the recent past, with their
educational and professional attainments. Yet, women in India, who constitute half the population, are still
far-far behind men in manifesting their true potential. Research evidences the fact that greater gender diversity
at senior management levels is accompanied by improved performance in organizations.
The government of India had rightly recognized the potential of women and given a call to harness their talent
to engender organizational excellence. The Companies Act 2013 mandates that women directors need to be
appointed in certain classes of companies. It is thus apparent that gender diversity is acquiring top of the
agenda status in the society.
A portfolio of skills including, interpersonal skills, negotiating skills, conflict resolution skills, change
management skills etc., would serve women in good stead. The absence of these skills amongst women, in
some cases, makes their movement up the career path difficult.
With this backdrop the 8th National Conference is designed for deliberating the leadership needs of women
executives. Six technical sessions are planned at the conference and it would deliberate on the following vital
issues relating to leadership development among women executives in various sectors of our economy.
• Skills to navigate the complex competitive landscape
• Common business challenges & career-building opportunities
• Developing confidence and leadership acumen
• Ability to balance career and personal aspirations
• Corporate Social Responsibility & Role of women executives
• Corporate Ethics & Role of women executives
