Speech to Stanford Sloan Fellows

Date: 
July 1 , 2010
Venue: 
Speech delivered by Azim Premji, Chairman, Wipro Corporation to Stanford Sloan Fellows.
Abstract: 
"This is not an easy task. The fact is that job growth in India trails the rise in working-age population. It is important that the gains are spread lot more pervasively across this group, so that the divide between them, if any, is minimized. Education is a crucial enabler that can make this transformation possible. Education spurs the greatest changes. It leads to the creation of a more just and equitable society. It changes the expectation a person has from herself. It is the only way we can upgrade the caliber of the talent pool in the country and build an inclusive society."
