Understanding the Social Sector

Know more about pathways to a career in the social sector with Richa Govil and Rajagopal C V.

Webinar Social sector 3 revised

Explore the dynamics of the social sector and the ways in which organisations within this space contribute to strengthening our public systems while addressing complex challenges.

The session will delve into the various pathways available for our youth to engage with social sector organisations. These encompass a diverse range, including philanthropic foundations, CSR departments, policy think tanks, social enterprises, semi-governmental organisations, bilateral institutions, and grassroots organisations. These organisations require trained professionals, offering work satisfaction and an aspirational career path.

If you are a working professional looking to transition to the social sector or a student completing their degree in 2024, this is an opportunity to expand your horizons about the social sector.
