The first panel that initiated the discussion comprised of Naseem Zahra, a renowned Pakistani Journalist and Dr Salman Shah, a noted Pakistani Economist, along with Mariam Nur Murad, Chairperson WILL.

Naseem Zahra focused on diversity in conflict management, where she put forth the fact that diversity emerges first as a general factor and then as a divisive factor, arising due to poor governance. Dr Salman Shah talked about diversity as an entity leads to conflict and if it becomes inclusive, it can lead to positive changes.
