Alums and Education: First Trailblazer Conclave by the Rotary Association
The Rotary Association organised the first Trailblazer Conclave on 9th June, in association with IIMBAA. This was part of the efforts to partner with other alumni / reputed associations in organising events that have a social impact, and that provide a platform for policy makers, practitioners, startups, inventors, researchers, alumni, etc. to exchange ideas and get connected. The event hosted Ms Rina Ray (Special Secretary, MHRD, Gov. of India) as the Key Note Speaker, with other distinguished speakers such as Syed Sultan Ahmed (LXL Ideas), Beth Caldwell (British Council), Prof P.D. Jose (IIMB) and Shekhar Mehta (Rotary India Literacy Mission).
The institute has in the past organised events based on “Agriculture” and “Water” along with Social Entrepreneurs and Enterprises, a Pan IIT/IIM alum venture, and an event around startups in partnership with the alumni associations of IIM Allahabad, IIM Mumbai and IIM Kolkata.
