The Department of Management, BIT, Mesra, Ranchi, conducted a panel discussion on “Gender Equality & Education” in collaboration with the Internal Complaint Committee (ICC) BIT, Mesra, on January 13th, 2020. The programme was inaugurated by Dr. Nisha Gupta (The chairperson of ICC, BIT Mesra). She emphasised on the principles and importance of gender equality and education in the country and worldwide. She also talked about the legal and other formal regulations put in place by the Government to promote gender equality at the workplace. She briefed the students about ICC and its initiatives in the institute. Later, Dr. Shradha Shivani, Head of Department, MBA, threw light on the gender inequality in our society and the discriminatory attitude towards women that has existed for generations in India which prevented their career development and progress for decades. She also highlighted the recent inception of the bill that protects the rights of transgender persons by the Parliament of India regarding legal gender recognition which requires an individual to apply for transgender certificate. The chief speaker for the event was Dr. Manju Bhagat, who spoke about sexual harassment towards women and the inequality faced by them at workplace as well as within families. She tried to draw attention to the fact that despite the laws and regulations against these practices, they are still prevalent in the country and are growing at an alarming rate causing a great imbalance in our social structure. She averred that it has been found that married women are compelled to quit their existing jobs within 2 to 3 years of getting married due to family pressure for raising the children. She concluded that we must install the very idea of gender equality and the importance of education in us and in our families. We then started with the panel discussion. Two first year students, two final year students and two research scholars participated in the discussion. Each participant spoke about their views on the various parameters of gender inequality prevalent in the various facets of our daily life. It was highlighted that gender equality is the process of being fair to not only women but also men and transgender people and providing them with equal opportunities of growth and development in every field, giving them access to the various necessities for building a comfortable life and also providing them freedom to take their life decisions individually and independently. All in all, the conclusion drawn was that gender equality does not mean that men and women become the same, only that access to opportunities and life changes is neither dependent on, nor constrained by, their sex. Achieving gender equality requires women to ensure that decisionmaking at private and public levels, and access to resources are no longer weighted in men’s favour, so that both women and men can fully participate as equal partners in productive and reproductive life.

The workshop focused on two significant requirements of quality technical education viz pedagogical competencies and application of quantitative research methods. Pedagogical competencies of instructors play a crucial role in improving the quality of the teaching and learning in higher education institutions. The philosophy of Outcome Based Education (OBE) is a student centric approach to education in which decisions about the curriculum design, contents and teaching methods are driven by the verifiable exit learning outcomes that the students should display on completing the course. This is an era of technology enhanced learning,blended learning which implies combining e-learning with traditional classroom methods and independent study is the need of the hour. The workshop had sessions on use of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) which have enabled scaling up of access to quality education to millions of students around the world. In this era of multi-disciplinary application of Data Science, expertise in quantitative research methods is a necessity for faculty and researchers across disciplines.
