The theme for the (virtual) annual research symposium at IFMR GSB this year is Inclusion and Sustainability. The inequalities and exclusion that surfaced during the ongoing pandemic, and the recent widespread protests from the BLM movement have served as a wake-up call globally and put a spotlight on how inclusive our societies really are. This symposium highlights evidence-based research towards answering some burning questions on inclusion and sustainability. It promises to be an action packed day with an interesting range of themes and speakers from across the world.
