KAMPALA – Ms Sheena Ruparelia, the director of Ruparelia Group of companies and Uganda Law Society President-elect Pheona Nabasa Wall are set to headline a women development talk show slated for this Friday.
The talk show themed ‘Enhancing Women Capabilities towards development in Uganda’ will take place on Friday 18th September from 11 to 1pm. It will be streaming live on the Victoria University Kampala Facebook Page.
Sheena Ruparelia is the second born to East Africa’s richest businessman Sudhir Ruparelia. Her hunger for success has earned her recognition as an untamable achiever and able defender of the Ruparelia family empire and legacy.
Just like her siblings Meera (first born) and Rajiv, Sheena was tutored into the challenging world of business by her wealthy father, a pragmatic believer in empowering his children to thrive as independent business minds as opposed to spoon-feeding them off his expansive conglomerates.
Wall on the other hand is an advocate with a Bachelors’ Degree in Law, a Diploma in Legal Practice and an MBA in Management.
She is a governance professional and a public relations practitioner with over 15 years’ experience, currently serving as the Senior Manager Legal Services National Water and Sewerage Corporation, a position she has held since June 2014.
She is also the Chairperson of the Legal Aid and Pro-Bono Project of the Uganda Law Society.
She has served on various boards including Water FC, Future Investments Group, East African Young Water Professionals, Uganda Law Society, Public Relations Association of Uganda, among others.
She won the Hague Institute for Innovations in Law’s “2018 Talent to Watch” award and is a New Vision 40 under 40 finalist for 2018.
