Mangaluru: In a bid to clear the doubts of Pre University lady students of various colleges across the city regarding career building, St. Agnes College hosted an orientation programme on empowering women. The workshop on ‘Global Qualification Opportunities and Soft Skills to empower women’ was conducted by CLAP (Center for Learning and Advanced Preparation) in association with ISDC (International Skill Development Corporation) for PUC students.
Greeting the future pioneers gathered at the event with ‘Good Morning Future’, CLAP co-founder and skill development trainer Prof. G S Sreekiran said that the future of India lies in the hands of ladies of today. He went on to say, “There are adequate opportunities in the present generation for an effective career development and every one of us must tap into those opportunities to reach the top.”
Principal of St. Agnes College, Sr. Dr. M Jeswina spoke about the achievements of the college after starting off as the first private run women’s college in the west coast of India. She added, “For the past 96 years, St. Agnes College has been encouraging women to study and engage in co-curricular activities. Skill development is very important in the present day competitive world and the students must be ready to face interviews and other tests with confidence.”
After a brief inauguration ceremony, Prof. Sreekiran took up the session and introduced the students to some of India’s top women of power in various sectors of the economy. He also took up classes on skill development and career guidance for the PUC girls. Advising the students about career building, Prof. Sreekiran said, “Choose your race and do not participate in others’ race. You are unique with your own set of skills.”
