Building community-wide awareness regarding careers for women in the IT and BPO sectors in Sri Lanka, empowering women and girls to choose careers in the IT and BPO sectors, and enabling them to remain and advance in those careers.
As a group of professionals from Sri Lanka’s leading technology-driven companies and academia, we have committed time, effort, and energy towards driving solidarity in diversity and inclusion. We have launched a series of programs driving Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace and Academia, to bring awareness towards building a community of professionals advocating multi diversity facets to the forefront.
Our organization DCLK, is under the patronage of several leading industry bodies including The Sri Lanka Association of Software and Service Companies (SLASSCOM https://slasscom.lk/), and FITIS that is the leading representative body for the local IT and BPM sectors and the need for an such an initiative in Sri Lanka was initially raised by the Asian Development Bank, with Export Development Bank, Sri Lanka as the nodal agency. DCLK was inaugurated as a formal organization after a series of brainstorming and kickoff events hosted by PwC Sri Lanka along with many leading professionals invited to contribute to this effort.
Diversity Collective Lanka is the national organization committed to empower and embrace diversity. We will help your organization thrive by optimizing diversity within the community. Currently, we expand our services covering mainly schools, Higher Education, and the corporate sector.
