THEME: INCLUSION, INSTITUTION AND INNOVATION
Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, from the Maha Upanishad is the corner stone of Indian culture. It reiterates the importance of inclusivity for the society at large. In this regard, institutions play a critical role in any society. On the other hand, innovation plays a critical role for the survival and progress of an institution. The conference theme is grounded on this triad: institution, inclusion and innovation. Institution occupies the center-stage as it drives growth and well-being of any society through inclusivity and innovation. The conference invites scholarly work that focuses on what the institutions can do to foster inclusivity and sustain innovation at different levels.
A Doctoral Colloquium for all doctoral students who are either at early proposal stage or advanced stage of their thesis work shall be organized. This event will bring together doctoral scholars from different disciplines of management studies, providing an opportunity for interaction and networking with scholars and peers who share common interests. During the colloquium there will be paper presentations by participants from different institutes. Full time doctoral students will make presentations on their thesis topics.
The Conference is open for both academicians (researchers, doctoral students, professors, academic and research associates and other members of student community) and practitioners (senior middle and lower management, R&D personnel’s).
