Social Impact Award 2009: “Honouring the Elderly “

SPJIMR recognizes its twin roles as a responsible member of Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan and the responsive member of the Indian society at large. It looks at itself in a wider context ‘beyond MBA’ institution by engaging itself in socially relevant segments of Indian society.

As a management institute we envisage a much broader scope for our participants- as change agents not only in the corporate world but also in the social landscape.

The Center for Development of Corporate Citizenship (DOCC) at SPJIMR was established in the year 2001 with a view to mould management education in accordance with the Indian context. DOCC is built on SPJIMR’s philosophy of ‘value based growth’ and ‘influencing practice’.

As part of this endeavour, SPJIMR organizes Social Impact Award every year to recognize the best projects/work implemented by the NGO’s/Ind. working in diverse fields which have substantially impacted the society.

This year 2009, the theme of the event is “Honouring the Elderly “and the award ceremony will be held on 16th December, at SPJIMR Auditorium, Bhavan’s Campus, at Andheri.

Over the years, there have been considerable changes in demographic trends of ageing. Improved life expectancy has led to an increase in the 60+ population of India. A growing number of persons 60+ in the coming decade will be economically better off with higher educational and professional qualifications.

Ageing doesn't mean slowing down. And to celebrate this fact, SPJIMR will honour three achievers for their irresistible momentum at the Social Impact Award.

We extend a cordial invitation to you on this occasion ,Kindly request you for the confirmation, enclosed please find the Program schedule.

Regards, Nirja Mattoo , Chairperson, Center for DOCC , S P Jain Institute of Management & Research
