Over 200 youth leaders and selected organizations met, shared perspectives and propose possible actions around issues.

The theme of the forum was Envisioning City 2020, the agenda was designed in a way to empower the delegates to connect themselves to the businessmen in the room and paint the perfect picture for the city.

She Leads opened with Ms. Ramita Vig, President, AIESEC India asking some serrated questions that cut through many inconspicuous denials and proclivities of ours that inhibit the growth of female leadership. Mrs. Sangeet Growar , in light contrast highlighted that Female Leaders are simply individuals with leadership potential, and the tag of them being out there to prove the existence of “empowered women” itself violates the virtue of
gender equity.

Through an interactive method of asking the delegates for their opinions, he smoothly sailed through the structure of his session defining Business, and explaining how adaptation to change is the only way to ensure sustainability of organizations.
