The 6th National Leadership Conclave was virtually organized by the All India Management Association (AIMA). Students and Faculty of Hindustan Institute of Management and Computer Studies (HIMCS) joined this conclave as an academic partner. The aforesaid conclave held on 20th and 21st of April, 2021 on the topic “The Big Disruption: Leadership in the Post-Covid World”.
HIMCS organized a quiz competition for students based on the content of this conclave with an award “Most Avid Learner Award”.
The main attraction of conclave was the Honorable Minister of External Affairs of the Government of India, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar. He answered the questions and doubts of different participants including students regarding the different measured taken by the Gov. of India while dealing with COVID-19. When one of the participants asked him that “When there is a shortage of Corona- Vaccine in India then Why we are exporting Vaccine?”, he replied that since India is importing raw materials for Corona-Vaccine from other countries so we have to provide them the final product also. Similarly, he commented on the India-China relationship and said “We must have a return to peace and tranquility on the China border”. “Last year, that changed. Without provocation, China brought enormous force to the border. You can’t disrupt peace and tranquility at the border and carry on with the rest of the relationship… If this relationship is to progress, I must have a return to peace and tranquility on the border”. He extended his best wishes to AIMA for organizing the convention on this subject. The conclave was led and co-chaired by Mr. Sanjiv Goenka, Chairman, RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, and Mr. Sunil Kant Munjal, Chairman, Hero Enterprise.
