The 34 th annual conclave of the Forum of Women in Public Sector (WIPS) turned the spotlight on the need to recognise women as indispensible catalysts for progress.

The theme for this year’s WIPS conclave, held in Bengaluru from February 12-13, 2024, was ‘Women - The Future of Sustainable Growth’.

Her Highness, the Maharani of Mysore, Smt Pramoda Devi Wadiyar, inaugurated the conclave and spoke at length on how the role of women in Public Sector Enterprises had evolved over the years with a positive shift towards inclusivity and gender equality. She expressed her pride in her family’s legacy of granting women voting rights and property rights.

Mr Atul Sobti, Director General of SCOPE, was the Guest of Honour. Addressing the gathering which represented the 75,000-odd women workforce spread across diverse sectors, he lauded women for their significant contributions to India’s GDP and socio- economic development. He added that Indian women today enjoy global acclaim and that the country’s leaders had taken the lead in harnessing women power.

Mrs Varsha S Raut, President, WIPS (APEX), said: “Women bring a fresh approach to problem-solving and decision-making, often prioritising collaboration, empathy and long- term thinking.”

The national event was a big draw with around 700 participants from PSEs across the country. It focussed on the pivotal role played by women in driving sustainable growth. Recognising women as indispensable catalysts for progress, the discussions delved into their multifaceted contributions across various sectors.
