The topic for the seventh session at the conference is on ‘Corporate Social Responsibility and Nation building; how communication supports in building blocks, bridging the gap between social responsibility and political governance’.

Our esteemed speakers Sameer Bajaj, Director - Corporate Communications and External Affairs, Discovery India and Dr. Ranjana Kumari, Director, Centre for Social Research, will discuss how brands are sensitive towards society and its development. Government initiative enforced brands commitment towards nation building through human capital. Role of communication person is to ensure CSR falls in line with brands business interest and the impact it has on people. The key is to define and device a key strategy which enhances brands reputation. Media, on the other hand, is a crusader in sensitizing the public about the issues and how corporate and nodal agencies are addressing those issues through their initiative.

After finishing her schooling, she moved to Delhi and did her MA, MPhil, and Ph.D. in Political Science from Jawahar Lal Nehru University.

Her foray into social work was initiated by her concern for a dowry death that took place near her home in 1976. This led to her activism on world famous publication “Brides are not for Burning”.
