The dynamic shift in Leadership has revolutionized the way we interpret the term ‘Management’. The post pandemic resurrection of industries was led by leaders all across the globe, who dared to dream big and think out of the box, thereby redefining management and transforming the future. The pandemic was leveraged upon by many firms as an opportunity to transform digitally and grow beyond barriers. Data-driven transformation has brought about a renaissance in the field of management, by introducing the world to big data and data warehousing tools, which not only helps leaders to forecast erratic changes in the market but also to anticipate an optimal course of action.
Leaders, therefore promote the development of relevant skill sets through organisational transformation and encouraging employees to create an inclusive learning environment. With inclusion, there comes a need to be diverse as well as equitable. An inclusive organisation is one with representation from diverse backgrounds and which gives an equal opportunity for each employee to develop and participate. Companies like Johnson & Johnson and MasterCard have maximised diversity and inclusion in their organizations. Therefore leadership, as we see today, is a culture which provides the foundation for organizational and industry stability. Leadership today promotes inclusion and diversity while using state of the art technology to lead change and tackle challenges.

Entrepreneur’s Story 2022 was successfully conducted online with the theme “Innovator’s Edge 2022”.

The primary objective of the SWSC Committee is to address and effectively solve various student related matters. SWSC is a bridge between students and authorities. The committee has to maintain a balance between student’s demands/problems and feasibility of solution provided by authorities.
There are three prominent areas which come under the purview of this committee. These are:
Functioning of the Hostel/ Campus: Developing a suitable system in which complaints of students with respect to hostel/campus infrastructure will be attended to by the maintenance staff within one working day. Taking care of the needs of the students and making suggestions to the management based on the same.
Functioning of the Mess/Cafeteria: Since food is the most primitive form of comfort, SWSC will strive hard to improve the quality and taste of food served in the mess and cafeteria. Complaints of students related to the mess facilities will be considered and appropriate steps for solving them will be taken. Quality checks in the mess and cafeteria will be done on regular basis. Infrastructure of Mess, Cafeteria and Water requirements will be taken care of as well.
Maintaining Discipline and Decorum in the College Premises: SWSC believes in: No evil propensity of the human heart is so powerful that it may not be subdued by discipline”. Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment and self-discipline is one of the key ingredients of success in life. So we try to imbibe the feeling of accountability into the students by showcasing that they are responsible in all ways for upholding the reputation of the Institute through their actions.
To develop unity and integrity among students. As students belong to different states, countries, cultures and religions, various on-campus events will be conducted, which will represent different Indian/International festivals. These events will make students aware of customs of others. Together we will celebrate festivals to get united and know each other better. Various events- Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratri Puja, Gurpurab Langar, Christmas, Lohri, Holi, etc. had already been slotted for this purpose. Others can be added as per requirement.
