Shreyasi Singh, Founder & CEO, Harappa Education said, “We’ve all responded differently to the challenges these uncertain times have surfaced. But, through it all, I’ve been heartened to see so many people really embrace change and leverage their Good Habits to create positivity and inspire others around them. At Harappa, we believe that Good Habits are the cornerstones of success, no matter who you are and what you do. I’m thrilled to launch this initiative and hope these Habit Heroes will inspire others to be changemakers too.”
“I’ve been associated with Harappa for a while; as faculty for some of their courses and now as a member of this excellent jury panel. This initiative is very timely with all the change and uncertainty around us. It’s important because there are so many people whose innate kindness and habits have brought out the hero in them. I’m delighted to be part of the jury panel that will help bring these stories to the forefront”, added Srikant Sastri, Chairman, IIM Calcutta Innovation Park; Co-founder, Crayon Data.
This Harappa initiative takes a step back to put the spotlight on our ‘everyday’ Good Habits. They can make all the difference; especially in these difficult times.
