IIM Ranchi Launches “Human Connect” WeEvolve...WeConnect

IIM Ranchi Launches “Human Connect” WeEvolve...WeConnect - A Flagship Event for Promoting Mental and Emotional Well-being Among Business Management Students.

IIM Ranchi is excited to announce the launch of its flagship event, “Human Connect” WeEvolve...WeConnect, on 26th January 2023, aimed at fostering a deeper sense of connection and community among business management students.

IIM Ranchi Director, Prof. Deepak Kr. Srivastava said that "as human beings, we are inherently social creatures and our well-being is deeply intertwined with the well-being of those around us. However, in today's fast-paced and complex world, it can be all too easy to lose sight of this fundamental truth.  It is in light of these difficulties that IIM Ranchi has designed “Human Connect” WeEvolve...WeConnect to provide students with opportunities to come together, share, and express themselves in various forms of art and other avenues".

The student coordinator for the institute counselling cell informed that the event will feature a variety of activities, including a collective drum circle, human library, tree plantation, collective dance, collective meditation, WeEvolve lecture series on various issues, professional counselling facility, collective canvas painting, mindfulness interventions and pet therapy.

Dr. Tanusree Dutta, Chair of the Happiness Centre, added that these activities are not just for fun but also to give an opportunity to the students to connect with each other on a deeper level, to understand and accept one another, and to appreciate the beauty of diversity. As philosopher Aristotle said, "Man is by nature a social animal." By coming together, sharing, and expressing ourselves in various forms, we tap into our innate human need for connection and community. Through “Human Connect” WeEvolve...WeConnect, IIM Ranchi hopes to provide a valuable resource for individuals from all walks of life to come together and connect with one another on a deeper level, promoting mental and emotional well-being.
