“Towards a Compassionate World”

SEE learning is a universal curriculum, and its contents related to awareness, compassion, self-compassion, engagement, resilience, and system thinking could be taught and practiced by a diverse population. With that thought in mind, last year, in June 2022, we had a discussion with Prof. Ajit Parulekar, Director, of GIM. He encouraged us to introduce the SEE Learning module as part of the induction program of the incoming batch. Our discussion last year with SEE Learning India Team- Ms Reshma Piramal and Ms Neha Bhatia provided guidance and direction to us. With their support, GIM became the first management institute in the country to introduce this curriculum as a part of the induction program in 2022. This year, we followed the same approach and introduced the SEE Learning module during our induction for new students in June-July 2023
