The second module of 20 hours will be conducted over technology platform through synchronous broadband communication. Participants will be able to attend classes from respective locations with the faculty member in studio in a live, multi-media, interactive session over technology platform.

Speaking on the inauguration of the first leg of the programme, Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director IIM-Kozhikode, said “There is no contradiction between women who have opted for professional work and those who have stayed at ‘home’ – each one has a very vital role to play in all aspects of life of the community and society. This IIMK certificate programme has been specifically introduced to harness the potential of bright, talented women resources for the benefit of the society and the country at large, and help the members of Navy Wives Welfare Association pursue their passion for social welfare in more effective and fulfilling way.”

Adding further, Prof Priya Nair Rajeev, Programme Coordinator for the certificate programme said, “This program will help women from NWWA recognize their own social orientation, ideate on what they want to build with it, create an  entrepreneurial mind-set and pick up managerial skills to give purpose and form to their aspirations. The uniqueness of this programme lies in its blending of classroom, online and immersion experiences to bring to speed the latest in different kinds of social initiatives and thereby enable participants choose their form of engagement with society and business. We see this program as an opportunity for women to think about who they want to be, what they want to do and the impact they hope to create.
