Breach the gap between the industry and academia

The initial session of the mentoring series organized by the WIE affinity group was successfully commenced on 20th of August 2015 at the conference room of the Department of Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering. The very first mentor was Ms. Lakmini Wijesundara, the CEO and owner of IronOne Technologies who was also the speaker of the event. The main objective of this mentoring series is to breach the gap between the industry and the academics.

In addition to the speaker of the event Professor Dileeka Dias, the staff advisor of the WIE affinity group of University of Moratuwa, shared her presence. Women undergraduates from many different departments and different levels of study, were present to seek guidance from Ms. Wijesundara.

Ms. Wijesundara shared her life story with the girls through an interactive presentation and talked to them about how she became an entrepreneur. She elaborated her own experiences about the obstacles and barriers she had to face over the years, along the path to starting her own tech company. Her story was indeed inspiring for the young ladies. After the presentation, the audience was given the opportunity to ask questions from Ms. Wijesundara, where they could seek advice and guidance regarding their burning issues and clear their doubts about the tech industry. Not only about the industry, the girls were keen to ask questions about her inspiring life and how to face challenges and become successful. The main fact Ms. Wijesundara wanted to highlight was that girls should never think less of themselves comparing to males in the industry and also anything the boys can do in tech field, can be accomplished by girls as well, if they have the determination.
