SWIM (Successful Women in Management) is an Annual one day Event conducted by Great Lakes Institute of management, Chennai since 2007. The objective of this initiative is to identify & felicitate women who have contributed in some way or the other in their respective fields.

Naturally gifted to multi-task, compassionate and emphathetic, woman managers and entrepreneurs definitely bring a variety to the organization. In the current corporate scenario, woman achievers no longer are critizised to be blessed with opportunities. They create opportunities, deserve them and display sheer committment and talent to reach where they intend to. Today, B-Schools and organizations include a fair amount of woman which itself is a testimony to the change these woman have brought. 

In order to nurture such unique talents and inspire many more, Great Lakes started the SWIM event in 2007. Since then, the event has hosted some of the reputed woman leaders, entrepreneurs and acadamecians through the years. They have shared their experiences, struggles and solutions with the budding managers at Great Lakes, especially the woman. The event hosts a panel discussion every year which is moderated and participated by some of the well known women leaders. 

The SWIM event also identifies and honours talent among such woman leaders every year.
