Plenty of Opportunities for AIESEC Members
It was an important day for the young members of AIESEC, the global organisation, who congregated at the Indian School of Business here on Thursday. Their confidence rose at the AIESEC International Congress 2010.
The occasion was the Global Youth-to-Business Forum organised as part of the International Congress at the Indian School of Business.
At least six corporates sent out their senior associates to talk about their activity and how they could use AIESEC-trained youth, and the sessions lasted throughout the day.
The companies included Tata Consultancy Services, Hindustan Computers, Alcatel-Lucent, Deutsche Post DHL, Vale, Husqvarna, Quest Alliance, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Unilever and Electrolux.
The focus areas of the forum were harnessing youth innovation, labour mobility and diversity and responsible corporate behaviour. The output of the day’s sessions will be released in the Wall Street Journal Europe, it was learnt.
ISB’s Dean Ajit Rangnekar said the school was engaged in a partnership with AIESEC for the past five years and that he was fully convinced of the leadership qualities instilled in the members by the organisation.
Over 30 AIESEC members had studied in ISB he said, adding that he could take as many students as the youth network could provide.
Anand Pillai from Hindustan Computers said youth leaders should constantly re-evaluate and raise the standards of leadership every year even after achieving the set objectives and desired goals.
Miranda Ash, Global Director WorldBlue Community, an organisation for youth, commended AIESEC for being given the honour of ‘Most Democratic Workplace’ and said it had the power to effect change within their own environment.
The ground floor of ISB’s campus was teeming with youth from 107 nations mingling with ISB’s students most of the day.
