Under its Management Development Programme (MDP), the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Sambalpur organised the women leadership programme for 30 women officers of Mahanadi Coalfields Limited.
The two-day programmes will guide various aspects of the business.
“The transformation around the world requires new thinking, self-well-being, making sense of shifting market dynamics, developing new strategic directions and energizing people. IIM-S is focused on providing support to organisations and helping them think bigger and differently, to cultivate growth potential of new markets, to redefine markets in their vision, and engage customers and employees in more relevant and inspiring ways,” said IIM Sambalpur in its statement.
Professor Mahadeo Jaiswal, Director, IIM Sambalpur stated, “This program is quite special to IIM-S as we believe in inclusivity in all aspects and as an institute, we strongly contribute to an ecosystem of developing women leaders at the workplace. In the present scenario of enhanced technology and post-pandemic changes at the workplace, women will get more opportunities to perform better.”
Keshav Rao, Director – Personnel, Mahanadi Coalfields Limited said, “Such programmes are not only important for higher leadership roles but also for women empowerment. Organisations need to develop a conducive work environment that facilitates women to perform. The other gender plays a crucial role in supporting women to lead. Therefore, it calls for a collective responsibility among family, organisations and institutions at large.”
The programme was inaugurated by professor Mahadeo Jaiswal, Director IIM Sambalpur and Keshav Rao, Director – Personnel, Mahanadi Coalfields Limited.
