Organised by the student-run Women in Management Club (WIM) of IIM-Bangalore, the theme for this year is 'Redefining Power for a Newer Tomorrow'. Diversity issues prevalent to both men and women will be discussed during the summit.

This edition has a line-up of speakers, including Vinita Bali, former CEO and MD of Britannia Industries, who will be the chief guest for the summit. The other keynote speakers include Nirmala Sankaran, Co-founder of HeyMath!, and Malavika Harita, CEO of Saatchi and Saatchi Focus Network.

The discussion will be moderated by Prof Dalhia Mani, faculty member at IIM-Bangalore’s NS Raghavan Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (NSRCEL). The panel will discuss the reasons why women are reluctant to put themselves forward, which men are able to do far more easily. The panel discussion would cover this idea through the panellists’ professional journey.
