As part of the 23rd anniversary celebrations, Kiran Bedi, Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, IPS (Retd) delivered the 23rd Foundation Day lecture. IIMK known to create history marks a significant milestone on this foundation day. IIM Kozhikode has decided to create 60 additional seats exclusively for women in their prestigious postgraduate program in management (PGP) from the next academic year. These seats will be supernumerary and will not affect the chance of candidates in existing seats. 

Selection to these seats for women will be based on a separate application and selection process to identify exceptional performers with potential for leadership positions in the industry. Institute will be following the prevailing reservation norms for socially disadvantaged communities. 

Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director, IIM Kozhikode said that the affirmative action is in line IIM Kozhikode’s legacy of enabling increased participation of women in leadership positions in the industry and the community. IIM Kozhikode had earlier pioneered a bold initiative to enhance the number of women in its academic program which started with an unprecedented 30% women admitted to the batch during the year 2010 which increased to a historic high of nearly 54 per cent for the 2013 admissions. This was very well- received by the recruiters and translated to a better performance in placements as several leading firms were looking at enhancing the participation of women in the managerial cadre

Subsequently, all the other IIMs had followed this policy thereby substantially increasing the opportunities for women in the national institutions. Now IIM Kozhikode has announced another path-breaking initiative.

Prof. Chatterjee said that he hoped this initiative would help in attracting some of the brightest talents to the campus.
