“Dreams Know No Gender”
Katalyst believes that exposure to inspiring leaders who have gone through the trials and tribulations to achieve their goals would motivate the Katalysts to relentlessly work towards their own personal and professional goals. Hence, every year Katalyst organises a national convention in Goa, where Katalysts from all the centers get an opportunity to interact with each other, with leaders from the industry who are invited for the panel discussion and with the mentors and supporters who attend the convention.
Katalyst’s 8th Annual Convention was held on 29th July 2017 in Country Inn and Suites, Goa, amidst room filled with 170 bright young women in bright yellow t-shirts eager to absorb all that panelists had to offer, eager to learn and be more empowered! All these young women from some of the most challenging socio-economic circumstances had the desire and ambition to achieve personally, academically and professionally.
The theme for this year’s convention couldn’t have been more relevant, “Dreams Know No gender”, represented by a power packed panel comprising,
- – Debjani Ghosh, Former MD Intel South Asia
- – Shaheen Mistri, Founder of Teach For India and Akanksha Foundation
- – Gen S. M. Mehta, CEO, The Hans Foundation
- – Anjali Bansal, Former Global Partner and MD
