CHENNAI: The perception about the role of women as leaders and managers is changing. More and more women are realising and proving that they can lead and manage better than men... The countries that have more women in their workforce are faring better financially. Women have to break away from the past misconceptions and move forward...” These were some of the points that came up at the Madras Management Association (MMA) Women Manager’s Convention 2016 with the theme ‘Route to the Summit’ held recently in the city. Sadhana Somasekhar, MD, Platinum Infosystems, and director, Future Focus Infotech, said women had to move away from ‘special treatment’.

Topics like jumping the hurdles, leadership styles, and power of positive connection were also discussed.
