Recognising the importance of women’s leadership in STEM, Women in Tech Sri Lanka organised the event to support and uplift women professionals in STEM domains. Attendees gained invaluable knowledge and inspiration from esteemed HR and Recruitment Specialist, Consultant and International Trainer, Taz Rajabali. Drawing from his vast and diverse experiences working across multiple industries in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, Taz has delivered sustainable solutions and enhanced outcomes in areas including Talent Strategy, Leadership Development, Learning and Development, and Technology Implementation for renowned organisations such as McKinsey, Accenture, and Microsoft.

“Taz’s expertise provided attendees with invaluable insights into career acceleration strategies, effective communication of value, and overcoming challenges in STEM,” remarked Chathini Uduwana, Chapter Ambassador of Women in Tech Sri Lanka. “His hands-on guidance on goal-setting, accountability and emphasising the importance of quantifiable outcomes resonated deeply with participants. In the end, they were able to consider what grassroots changes they could make to progress to the next stage in STEM, particularly leadership.” Uduwana continued, “He also led interactive exercises on networking and troubleshooting, creating an engaging and supportive environment among attendees.

By encouraging open dialogue and collective problem-solving, they were able to tackle career-related challenges with creativity and resilience.” Taz Rajabali’s commitment to empowering individuals extends beyond his professional endeavours.
