Women in Management Sri Lanka (WIM) has launched the second edition of the WIM awards Canada which will be held on March 29, 2019 at Grand Cinnamon Banquet and Convention Center, Toronto, Canada.

WIM is committed to empower Sri Lankan career women and women entrepreneurs by providing them with guidance to leadership through furthering their skills and knowledge. In Sri Lanka together with the World Banks private sector investment arm, International Finance Corporation (IFC), the 8th edition of the “WIM Top 50 Awards” was concluded in August 2018.

The Founder Chairperson of WIM, Dr. Sulochana Segera said, “WIM has taken its Awards program to Canada to recognize and award with the prestigious WIM Award to Sri Lankan origin women who have excelled in their field of profession and business in Canada.”

“Further, WIM has launched its Canada chapter in March 2018 to empower Lankan origin women living in Canada to excel in their field of profession and business in Canada.” WIM Representative in Canada, Rienzie Martinesz said, “We had a very successful Award program and an Awards ceremony in 2017/2018. We had an amazing response from people congratulating WIM for the initiative taken. We received quality nominations. We also saw people demonstrating their commitment to be a part of this unique and fruitful program. We had 52 nominations last time and 37 were chosen as winners by the judges and they became the recipients of the prestigious WIM Award.”

“It was a proud moment for us to get to know 37 Sri Lankan origin women who have excelled in their professions and businesses in Canada,” he said. “It is certainly an aspiration to younger and other women living in Canada. It is a great opportunity to showcase Sri Lankan products amongst Sri Lankan Canadians living in Canada to gain exposure amongst the 400,000 Sri Lankan origins (20,000 households) living in Canada.”
