IIMBā€™s Office of Diversity and Inclusion hosts conference on ā€˜Careers for Persons with Disabilitiesā€™

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion at IIM Bangalore hosted a conference on ā€˜Careers for Persons with Disabilitiesā€™ on January 17 (Sunday), 2021.

During his welcome address, Prof. Rishikesha T Krishnan, Director, IIM Bangalore, said that over the years students with disability are getting much better support at IIMB and other institutions but several challenges remained. ā€œOne issue we repeatedly hear from our alumni and alumni of other institutes is that while these students get their first job from campus, their subsequent career advancement is not on par with peers who join the same companies or in similar rolesā€. He hoped the conference would help us move in the right direction.

The keynote address was delivered by Mahantesh G Kivadasannavar, Founder, Samarthanam Trust and former President of the World Blind Cricket Ltd. He discussed how Persons with Disabilities are equally capable of performing most of the tasks. Education, technology and building aspirations are very crucial for them as many such students come from challenged backgrounds, and most of the time they are neglected as their parents cannot support them financially. If they are exposed to the right opportunities and their talent is identified at a young age, they will start building aspirations and work towards getting employed. Schools and universities need to be sensitized as every student with disability has a different requirement and it is important to identify and create a support system for them.
