Extended Deadline
of January, 2023



Title : Demonstrating Gender-based Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging to unleash the collective Systemic potential!

The system has been co-created with multiple elements, including biases and social conditioning. As we evolve, what was best yesterday is no more the best for today or tomorrow. The graduates and the academia play a vital role in ensuring the upcoming generation is well-prepared to face reality and create a new reality in alignment with what will serve the common purpose of the system and the greater good which includes the planet, people, potential, and possibility. Come and join the conversation to co-create an unbiased system through the young ambassadors who would stand up and show up without bias and nurture with mindful Compassion and Empathy to support human well-being with the co-creation of technology.
