Initiatives for Inclusive Education were Highlighted at the ICC's Sixth Globalised Education Forum in Kolkata

News Desk, News Nation 360 : Recently, in Kolkata, the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) held its 6th Globalised Education Forum to discuss how to advance inclusivity in education and from the standpoint of professional courses. Chandani Tudu, IAS, Senior Special Secretary, Higher Education Department, Government of West Bengal; H.E. Dr Andrew Alexander Flemming, Deputy High Commissioner, British Deputy High Commission, Kolkata; Hemant Sahal, Founder & CEO, Digii (formerly CollPoll); Satyam Roychowdhury, Chairman, ICC National Expert Committee on Higher Education & Training and Chancellor, Sister Nivedita University; Prof. Dhrubajyoti Chattopadhyay, Vice Chancellor, Sister Nivedita University; Sardar Simarpreet Singh, Chairman, ICC National Expert Committee on Higher Education & Training and Director, JIS Group and many other dignitaries like Prof. (Dr.) Saikat Maitra, Former Vice Chancellor, MAKAUT; Kasturi Kejriwal, COO, Aditya Group. Under the direction of Chandani Tudu, the West Bengal government is making equal opportunities and inclusive education a top priority for every student. This is accomplished through the establishment of universities in each district, the provision of multilingual course offerings, and the provision of financial aid in the form of student credit cards and scholarships. Additionally, the government is dedicated to advancing inclusivity in education by forming alliances with more than 400 universities across the globe. The number of higher education institutions, gross enrolment (which includes a notable increase in female enrollment), and the female-to-male ratio in higher

education have all significantly increased as a result of these efforts. Furthermore, there has been a notable rise in the annual budget designated for postsecondary education. The government wants to usher in a revolutionary era of inclusive and accessible education for everybody with continued cooperation. Satyam Roychowdhury, Chairman of ICC National Expert Committee on Higher Education & Training, and Chancellor of Sister Nivedita University, stated according to Nelson Mandela, he thinks India has done a great job implementing several policies, like The Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, which shows their dedication to inclusive education. Nonetheless, there are still issues, such as the requirement for sufficient funding and infrastructure in schools. Working together is crucial to promoting a more varied and inclusive culture. By fostering an atmosphere in which everyone has an equal chance to contribute to society, they can encourage inclusivity in education and give countless people more power. They can change this area significantly if they work together.
