The Young Women’s Leadership Journey (YWLJ) is a joint social initiative of Praxis’ Beehive Club (HR Club) and the MILT NRI movement
Praxis Business School, Kolkata has announced the launch of the 2nd nd edition of 2-month certificate programme—the Young Women’s Leadership Journey (YWLJ), in partnership with MILT New Revolution of India (MILT NRI) movement, under the MILT Leadership Training Foundation (a non-profit organization).
A social initiative, the YWLJ is designed to help young women (aged 20-25 years) become leaders of tomorrow, as Praxis remains committed to breaking stereotypes both in the education and corporate fields. The first session of YWLJ edition 2.0 was conducted on December 10, 2022, by lead facilitator Shahida Hussain, Corporate Trainer, POSH & DEI Consultant, Zayaan Consulting Group and Visiting Faculty at Praxis Business School, who shared her insights with Praxis PGDM women students. Focussed on strengthening their understanding of the self, the programme helps the participants to build skills and behaviours that work best for them. The Programme concludes in January next year after a series of such workshops.
Commenting on the initiative, Prof. Charanpreet Singh, Founder Director, Praxis Business School Foundation, said, “India Inc. is a lot more dependent on its women leaders. The time has come to lay the foundation in educational institutes to encourage our girls to become better leaders for tomorrow. The YWLJ curriculum is draws from the rich experiences of the facilitators, who focus on the details of leading one’s self and identifying and developing more leadership traits in others. I am confident that this will make a world of difference going forward, to the careers of our women students.”
