IIM-K women to mentor school girls

Our Bureau Kozhikode | Updated on March 09, 2011

Female students of Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode (IIM-K), are embarking on a mission to empower girl students in here as part of the International Women's Day's centenary celebrations.

Hundred female students of the 2010-12 batch of the institute will take part in the initiative, which will start in June/July 2011, when the schools reopen after the summer vacation. The institute is planning to take the programme out to more schools in Kozhikode depending on the impact and reach of the venture.

The students will be divided into groups and allotted schools for providing career-counselling to eighth and ninth standard students. The social-service group of IIM-K conducts career counselling every year. Students of the institute have targeted eighth and ninth standard students this year, as most choose their careers when they are 14-15 years old.

According to Dr Debashis Chatterjee, Director, IIM-K, the students have joined the mission of mentoring youngsters in line with the institute's mantra of inclusive growth.
