As a gender-inclusive institution, IIMB believes in not only promoting gender equality, but also in ensuring that women find their rightful place in education, industry and entrepreneurship. Toward this end, Women in Management (WIM) at IIMB has launched a number of initiatives to create awareness about issues faced by women in industry and the role to be played by various stakeholders, including women themselves, in encouraging and developing women leaders. Multifarious events, such as talks, workshops and mentoring sessions are conducted through the year by involving women leaders and academic experts.
A flagship event of the Club is the Women Leadership Summit, which was held for the first time in February 2015. The keynote speaker in 2015 was serial entrepreneur Ms. Meena Ganesh, MD & CEO, Portea Medical. In 2016, the Summit hosted Ms Rama Bijapurkar, a leading consultant in market strategy, and Mr Sanjaya Sharma, Founder-CEO of Tata Interactive Systems and Tata ClassEdge, to deliver keynote addresses.
