SPJIMR-Centre of Development of Corporate Citizenship, DOCC
With its roots in Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, a pioneer NGO promoting Indian ethos and culture, DOCC at SPJIMR was a natural outcome. The Centre for Development of Corporate Citizenship was established in the year 2001 with a view towards bringing management education closer to reality in the Indian context. This is a full time social wing of the institute, which has full time faculty and research associates and consultants working on various social projects and corporate citizenship programs. Today it is one of the most successful pedagogic initiatives and an example that is being replicated by others.
The primary objective of the program is to impart strategies that strengthen women’s capacity and promote their participation in all aspects of political life leading to greater gender equality in key decision-making processes and positions.
The aim of the programme
To initiate Good Governance
Women are critical in achieving and maintaining goals of sustainable development. We look at this program as an initiative towards good governance and a step in the direction of achieving such goals.
Politics as profession
We believe that to be successful in any career one needs to be trained. Politics, in our opinion is a profession like any other, which requires training and development. We want to train Women empowering them towards effective and efficient functioning.
