watch the video and read about Kunal’s experience below! Last week I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak at the Zinnov Confluence 2018 on the topic ‘Millennial Dollar Baby: Investing in the Workforce of the Future’. The conference provided insights about how organisations should prepare themselves for the next generation workforce, which I was representing. Throughout the discussion, I gave the audience a candid and honest perspective of what youngsters like me would expect from employers. I was joined in the panel by Prof. Vasanthi Srinivasan from IIM; Pankaj Narulla, Sr. VP from Broadridge Financials; V.Chandramouliswaran, Sr. Director at PayPal; and my fellow senior, Sahiti Pingali. Together we covered how employers must account for changes in the next generation workforce, our mindset, skills, needs and expectations.I think one major revelation for us was that we youngsters are downright eager to make a difference, but ONLY after we understand its impact in the bigger picture. Sahiti and I also had an opportunity to voice our take on major forces like education and technology, and how we used them as resources to innovate and solve real-world issues at a young age. Overall, the conference proved to be very fun and enlightening for everyone. It was striking listening to the other panellists, and there were plenty of surprises for both the older generation and us millennials. But one thing was for sure, the future of employment has MANY unanswered questions. And the only certainty is change!

Chain Reaction- Can students who understand a topic teach other students who may not have understood and maybe reticent to ask an adult?
Our Lakes Our Voice- This will be the city and the ecology that we will inherit. Lakes are a vital resource for our city. They are dying. Can we save one?
Our Future Our Voice- We may care about issues that decision makers taking decisions regarding our future may not be considering. How might we get our voice heard by them?
Our Traffic Our Voice- Being hungry, sleepy, or wanting to go the bathroom while being on a one-hour school bus ride is not fun. Especially everyday! What can we do to decongest our roads?
Involve- Beyond the bubble of our privilege are children just like us. Can we form connections and do something for them concretely?

Tree RelocationSensitivity and respect towards the environment are given utmost importance at Inventure. Three trees were translocated to #InventureAcademy in a unique initiative termed as the country's first crowd funded tree translocation. The trees which would otherwise have been chopped down due to a road widening project, are thriving in their new, loving and nurturing environment. Staying true to our core values of being socially responsible, we have demonstrated how technology can be used to bring about positive change and promote sustainable development and living. Click here to know more about the Tree relocation initiative. These, and many more such initiatives, are essential to the teaching-learning process at Inventure Academy, and are activities that go beyond academics of a traditional kind, that make children well rounded and aspire towards purpose and achievement. We work to ensure that these values and the spirit of Inventure, stay with our students through their lives, manifesting in their every action, adding confidence and enabling them to achieve, and lead, with wisdom, foresight and caring.
