Conference: National Conference on Women in Sports

In the current global context, women's empowerment is a crucial and focal point, with sports playing a pivotal role in this endeavor, particularly as it has traditionally been considered a male-dominated domain. Over the years, there has been a significant surge in the participation of women in sports and their pursuit of careers in this field. Notably, the 1900 Olympics in Paris had a mere 2.2% female participation, contrasting sharply with the 48.7% recorded in 2020. The historical narrative of women's involvement in sports reflects both triumphs and strides towards equality and empowerment, yet it also highlights persistent challenges such as compensation disparities, limited television coverage, and instances of body shaming. Against this backdrop, the Department of Economics organized a national conference on Women in Sports on 03.11.2023, focusing on discussions and research presentations encompassing leadership and inclusion of women, mental health of women athletes, social change through sports, visibility and voice of women, and holistic development, while addressing issues of gender discrimination.

Conference: National Conference on Women in Sports

In the current global context, women's empowerment is a crucial and focal point, with sports playing a pivotal role in this endeavor, particularly as it has traditionally been considered a male-dominated domain. Over the years, there has been a significant surge in the participation of women in sports and their pursuit of careers in this field. Notably, the 1900 Olympics in Paris had a mere 2.2% female participation, contrasting sharply with the 48.7% recorded in 2020. The historical narrative of women's involvement in sports reflects both triumphs and strides towards equality and empowerment, yet it also highlights persistent challenges such as compensation disparities, limited television coverage, and instances of body shaming. Against this backdrop, the Department of Economics organized a national conference on Women in Sports on 03.11.2023, focusing on discussions and research presentations encompassing leadership and inclusion of women, mental health of women athletes, social change through sports, visibility and voice of women, and holistic development, while addressing issues of gender discrimination.

Conference: National Conference on Women in Sports

In the current global context, women's empowerment is a crucial and focal point, with sports playing a pivotal role in this endeavor, particularly as it has traditionally been considered a male-dominated domain. Over the years, there has been a significant surge in the participation of women in sports and their pursuit of careers in this field. Notably, the 1900 Olympics in Paris had a mere 2.2% female participation, contrasting sharply with the 48.7% recorded in 2020. The historical narrative of women's involvement in sports reflects both triumphs and strides towards equality and empowerment, yet it also highlights persistent challenges such as compensation disparities, limited television coverage, and instances of body shaming. Against this backdrop, the Department of Economics organized a national conference on Women in Sports on 03.11.2023, focusing on discussions and research presentations encompassing leadership and inclusion of women, mental health of women athletes, social change through sports, visibility and voice of women, and holistic development, while addressing issues of gender discrimination.


Student Seminar Series: Advancing Economic Knowledge and Fostering Academic Exchange

The Department of Economics is set to host a fortnightly seminar series every Wednesday, featuring distinguished economists presenting their research findings across various economic domains. This initiative aims to create a platform for students to showcase their research, receive constructive feedback, and enhance their dissertation completion process. The seminar series strives to achieve several objectives, including establishing a forum for discussing and expanding current economic research, providing students with a platform for discussing their research plans, and fostering the dissemination of knowledge within the academic community. The anticipated outcomes encompass the presentation of research ideas, methodologies, models, and results, the development of interpersonal communication skills, providing constructive feedback to peer researchers, and exposing participants to cutting-edge research in the field of economics.


SAMVAAD

Objectives: We, at SAMVAD, envision hosting a wide and diverse range of opinions from different groups, sections of the population regarding various socio-economic issues happening all over the world. The forum aims to nurture an unbiased environment where today’s youth can discuss and interact with each other about the world’s socio -economic problems and situations, their challenges and update one another and bring out solutions to the problems faced. Role and Functions: “In today’s fractured times, where if you are not there for me- you are against me, an opportunity to discuss and dissect in a non-divisive manner”. Hence, the club envisions highlighting the pressing issues and analysing the various aspects of such emerging concerns. At Christ University, where we aim towards multidimensional progress of our students; debate/discussions can promote different skills amongst our learners such as broader understanding, critical analysis and creative solutions. It further plays a crucial role in enhancing a learner's confidence, poise, and self-esteem. We try to provide an engaging, active, learner-centered activity that helps them to grow holistically and strive hard to ensure that our aims are intact and we are able to deliver the goals successfully.

Conference: National Conference on Women in Sports

In the current global context, women's empowerment is a crucial and focal point, with sports playing a pivotal role in this endeavor, particularly as it has traditionally been considered a male-dominated domain. Over the years, there has been a significant surge in the participation of women in sports and their pursuit of careers in this field. Notably, the 1900 Olympics in Paris had a mere 2.2% female participation, contrasting sharply with the 48.7% recorded in 2020. The historical narrative of women's involvement in sports reflects both triumphs and strides towards equality and empowerment, yet it also highlights persistent challenges such as compensation disparities, limited television coverage, and instances of body shaming. Against this backdrop, the Department of Economics organized a national conference on Women in Sports on 03.11.2023, focusing on discussions and research presentations encompassing leadership and inclusion of women, mental health of women athletes, social change through sports, visibility and voice of women, and holistic development, while addressing issues of gender discrimination.

The anticipated outcomes encompass the presentation of research ideas, methodologies, models, and results, the development of interpersonal communication skills, providing constructive feedback to peer researchers, and exposing participants to cutting-edge research in the field of economics.

Conference: National Conference on Women in Sports

In the current global context, women's empowerment is a crucial and focal point, with sports playing a pivotal role in this endeavor, particularly as it has traditionally been considered a male-dominated domain. Over the years, there has been a significant surge in the participation of women in sports and their pursuit of careers in this field. Notably, the 1900 Olympics in Paris had a mere 2.2% female participation, contrasting sharply with the 48.7% recorded in 2020. The historical narrative of women's involvement in sports reflects both triumphs and strides towards equality and empowerment, yet it also highlights persistent challenges such as compensation disparities, limited television coverage, and instances of body shaming. Against this backdrop, the Department of Economics organized a national conference on Women in Sports on 03.11.2023, focusing on discussions and research presentations encompassing leadership and inclusion of women, mental health of women athletes, social change through sports, visibility and voice of women, and holistic development, while addressing issues of gender discrimination.


Student Seminar Series: Advancing Economic Knowledge and Fostering Academic Exchange

The Department of Economics is set to host a fortnightly seminar series every Wednesday, featuring distinguished economists presenting their research findings across various economic domains. This initiative aims to create a platform for students to showcase their research, receive constructive feedback, and enhance their dissertation completion process. The seminar series strives to achieve several objectives, including establishing a forum for discussing and expanding current economic research, providing students with a platform for discussing their research plans, and fostering the dissemination of knowledge within the academic community. The anticipated outcomes encompass the presentation of research ideas, methodologies, models, and results, the development of interpersonal communication skills, providing constructive feedback to peer researchers, and exposing participants to cutting-edge research in the field of economics.


SAMVAAD

Objectives: We, at SAMVAD, envision hosting a wide and diverse range of opinions from different groups, sections of the population regarding various socio-economic issues happening all over the world.

Role and Functions: “In today’s fractured times, where if you are not there for me- you are against me, an opportunity to discuss and dissect in a non-divisive manner”. Hence, the club envisions highlighting the pressing issues and analysing the various aspects of such emerging concerns. At Christ University, where we aim towards multidimensional progress of our students; debate/discussions can promote different skills amongst our learners such as broader understanding, critical analysis and creative solutions. It further plays a crucial role in enhancing a learner's confidence, poise, and self-esteem. We try to provide an engaging, active, learner-centered activity that helps them to grow holistically and strive hard to ensure that our aims are intact and we are able to deliver the goals successfully.

Student Seminar Series: Advancing Economic Knowledge and Fostering Academic Exchange

The Department of Economics is set to host a fortnightly seminar series every Wednesday, featuring distinguished economists presenting their research findings across various economic domains. This initiative aims to create a platform for students to showcase their research, receive constructive feedback, and enhance their dissertation completion process. The seminar series strives to achieve several objectives, including establishing a forum for discussing and expanding current economic research, providing students with a platform for discussing their research plans, and fostering the dissemination of knowledge within the academic community. The anticipated outcomes encompass the presentation of research ideas, methodologies, models, and results, the development of interpersonal communication skills, providing constructive feedback to peer researchers, and exposing participants to cutting-edge research in the field of economics.

Conference: National Conference on Women in Sports

In the current global context, women's empowerment is a crucial and focal point, with sports playing a pivotal role in this endeavor, particularly as it has traditionally been considered a male-dominated domain. Over the years, there has been a significant surge in the participation of women in sports and their pursuit of careers in this field. Notably, the 1900 Olympics in Paris had a mere 2.2% female participation, contrasting sharply with the 48.7% recorded in 2020. The historical narrative of women's involvement in sports reflects both triumphs and strides towards equality and empowerment, yet it also highlights persistent challenges such as compensation disparities, limited television coverage, and instances of body shaming. Against this backdrop, the Department of Economics organized a national conference on Women in Sports on 03.11.2023, focusing on discussions and research presentations encompassing leadership and inclusion of women, mental health of women athletes, social change through sports, visibility and voice of women, and holistic development, while addressing issues of gender discrimination.
