CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

WOMEN’S FORUM 2020

“When Women Advance, So Does Society: Returns on Investments for Sri Lanka”

This panel discussion will focus on Women’s Empowerment and Returns on Investments (ROI). The impact of women’s advancements in society through empowerment strategies, represents both immediate and long-term investments with transformative impacts, for economic and social sustainability—and beyond.  While many workplace organizations see recruiting women merely as costs due to maternity leave, high transportation expenses, and childcare issues, they fail to calculate the contributions women make toward productivity, overall cost savings, accountability, and workplace well-being through women’s insights, labor, and collaborative and cooperative leadership styles.  Similarly, Sri Lankan dominant societal perceptions of women, confining women’s roles to motherhood and unskilled labor overlooks women’s value and the realities of women’s contributions.

This panel discussion, featuring successful, professional Sri Lankan women leaders and activists, will explore how women’s empowerment constitutes a Return on Investment—both in the present and in the long term for Sri Lankan society. Our goal is to facilitate discussion, debate, and concrete solutions to empower Sri Lankan Women.
