Workshop on 'Decoding the Career Aspirations of GenNext' for School Cousellors, College Advisors & Educators
Prof V. S. Rao set the tone for the workshop following which participants came up with their observations and views while working in small groups. Counsellors and teachers expressed that, apart from the usual attributes that a good higher educational institution is expected to possess, robust systems to promote Social Responsibility, Gender Sensitisation, Intra-student Collaboration and Support, Communal Harmony and interestingly ‘Happiness Quotient’ must also be put in place for GenNext.
