The event aimed to shed light on the theme of "Women Inclusive Governance in India" and foster knowledge sharing and collaboration between the two nations.

During her address, Sonal Goel emphasized various initiatives undertaken in India under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, focusing on promoting women's empowerment and inclusive governance. She highlighted significant programs such as the Aatm Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, Livelihood Missions, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign, PMMVY (Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana), Mission Shakti, and various social security and welfare schemes.

In addition to discussing the crucial initiatives led by the central government and various state governments, Sonal Goel shared her personal contributions to the cause of women empowerment.

She highlighted the notable ‘Nandini’ project in Gomati District, Tripura, which was recognized as a best practice on Civil Service Day in 2016. Furthermore, she discussed the impactful "Soch Pe Dastak" campaign that she spearheaded during her tenure in Jhajjar District, Haryana.

The interaction between Sonal Goel and the senior civil servants from the Maldives proved to be a fruitful exchange of insights, experiences, and ideas, serving as a stepping stone towards fostering stronger ties between the two nations in the pursuit of inclusive governance.

As women continue to rise to prominent positions and contribute significantly to governance and development, such platforms become vital in promoting diversity and empowering women in leadership roles.

Sonal Goel's participation in this event further solidifies her reputation as an influential figure in the domain of governance and women empowerment. Her dedication and commitment to driving positive change serve as an inspiration for aspiring civil servants, particularly women, who aspire to create a more inclusive and equitable society.
