It was a great experience organizing and conducting an Adhar Silver Jubilee Symposium on “ CSR for the Specially Abled- Ways to make it more meaningful” yesterday, on 5th Dec2018.
The event was graced by various stalwarts from different sectors. Our heartfelt thanks to the chief guest Mr. Jonathan Hwang Cultural Affairs Officer- US Consulate, Mumbai for gracing the symposium with his inspiring speech. He spoke about the steps the U.S. government has taken for the welfare of persons with intellectual disabilities. The sharing will be very useful for us while working in this sector. Our special thanks to Ms. Shweta Shalinii Advisor to CM (Maharashtra), ED at Maharashtra Village Social Transformation Foundation, for spending her precious time with us and discussing different issues about intellectual disability, social responsibility and government policies. Her eloquent speech was truly inspiring.
We are also grateful to Mr. Prashant Joshi Chief Operating and Risk Officer, IndoStar Capital Finance Limited for sharing his views about CSR, it’s practical implementation and the need for volunteering by the corporate employees. We were blessed to have the youngest speaker, Mr. @Kaushik Datta Programme Lead/Specialist, National CSR Hub, TISS. to share his mind about CSR as a career and some fundamental issues need to be considered in this sector.
We sincerely thank Mr. Milind Sarwate, Founder & CEO Increate Value Advisors for his valuable contribution and dedication to make this symposium a huge success. We are blessed to have him associated with Adhar.
Last but not the least, Adhar thank all the guests, participants and everyone who made this event meaningful in the true sense of the word.
