28 girls join IIM-B women's leadership program

Published On: 16 Jul 2012

 | Last Updated On: 16 Jul 2012

The Indian Institute of Management – Bangalore (IIMB) has introduced a ten week India-Women in Leadership Program of the Centre for Public Policy, IIM-Bangalore and Centre for Social Research, New Delhi which was launched by Margaret Alva, Governor of Rajasthan. Twenty eight women were selected for this program.

These candidates who belong to different parts of the country were shortlisted after several rounds of interview. They are required to spend a good period of time at their home constituencies which will help them to understand governance.

The program emphasizes on practical aspects, policy and politics along with informing them on gender issues and ideology. Apart from the learning sessions at IIMB, the program participants will spend a week each in New Delhi and Singapore. They will get an opportunity to interact with top politicians including the prime minister.

A computer science student from Kashmir informed that she took up this course to break the perception that Muslim women cannot take part in mainstream politics. After completing the course she hopes to join mainstream politics and also change peoples’ opinion about women in politics.

Another student who is a zilla parishad member from Chamarajnagar, informed that she will utilize the training to improve her public image and hone her communication skills. She wants to become a better woman leader through this program.

A dignitary present at the inauguration ceremony addressed the participants and revealed that the status of women in the Indian politics is very low and political parties view women merely as vote-banks. She further added that young aspiring women leaders need support from their parties to be able to win elections and make a change.
