XISS and PHIA Foundation sign MoU for gender equality
XISS, Ranchi, and Partnering Hope Into Action (PHIA) Foundation, Ranchi, have signed an MoU for a partnership of one year for cooperation in areas of gender equality and engaging XISS students as Change Makers. This partnership is in time to amplify the involvement of the budding graduates passing out from XISS to become Changer Maker of this initiative, where they become individuals who are willing to delve deeper and critically question believes and values which perpetuates inequality. As a knowledge partner, PHIA Foundation will help in organizing workshops/thought-shops and awareness programs on gender issues for the students. The partnership also will help in creating a safe space (online or offline) like Gender Adda to encourage students to share their experience, question, debate, interact and challenge current gender stereotypes in society and particularly in their surroundings. The partnership aims at co-creating a facilitative platform where young leaders of tomorrow can get an immersive experience to understand the nuances around the issue of gender through the lens of masculinity and help create a new narrative around gender justice.
