YUNUS SOCIAL BUSINESS CENTRE
SOCIAL BUSINESS DAY 2022
A major aspect of our efforts at Birla Institute of Management Technology is to make future-ready professionals. One of the practices that we put a lot of emphasis on is the inculcation of responsible business habits.
As a first step towards the journey of creating awareness, we grabbed the opportunity to organize Social Business Day on 28-29th 2022.
Social Business Day is an initiative that has been gaining traction in recent years. It is an annual event that celebrates the achievements of social business enterprises. The day recognizes the businesses and organizations that are making a positive impact in their communities.
The two-day event included a power-packed panel discussion with full house attendance of participants. A fireside chat session was conducted on the following topics -
Building Sustainable Societies through Social Business
Creating Social and Intellectual Capital
Building Community of Social Business Researchers
A briefing on the workshop was given by Dr. Nisha Pandey, Chairperson, Yunus Social Business Centre, Vivekanand Education Society, Mumbai.
The Guest of Honour, Mr. Umesh Anand, Founder, of Civil Society, addressed the event and shared that a brand can only be built if they are social. Moreover, our chief guest, Mr. SuniL Shukla, Director, of the Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India, spoke about the numerous schemes available and how we simply need to raise awareness.
Dr. Arunaditya Sahay gave concluding remarks, Dean of Research, BIMTECH, shared his personal experiences about keeping our people a priority, which is the only way a successful social business purpose can be sustained.
This day reminded us all of the power of social entrepreneurship, and how businesses can make a positive impact on society and the environment. It also gave us a great opportunity to collaborate with universities and help young entrepreneurs find success. Social Business Day is an example of how we can come together to help create a better world.
Moving ahead on the path to nurture social values, BIMTECH collaborated with Yunus Social Business Centre, Bangladesh, and officially launched Yunus Social Business Centre in BIMTECH.
