BMICH has a unique affiliation with women with two of Sri Lanka’s leading personalities – Late Sirimavo Bandaranaike, the first female Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and the world who was also the founding Chairperson of BMICH and Chandrika Kumaratunga, the first female President of Sri Lanka who is also the current Chairperson of the BMICH Board of Management, both being of iconic significance to our country as well as globally,” said BMICH Chief Executive Sunil Dissanayake in his address. 

After the inauguration ceremony, the main speaker, ITC Colombo One Hotel & Residences Human Resources Director Salome Senaratne addressed the participants on personality development, how to successfully face challenges, importance of education, leading a healthy life and how to effectively manage time. She also spoke of her life experiences and challenges she faced to reach the pinnacle of her chosen career while successfully balancing her family life which was an inspiration for all.
