Speech to Stanford Sloan Fellows

July 1 , 2010
Speech delivered by Azim Premji, Chairman, Wipro Corporation to Stanford Sloan Fellows.
"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."
