There is a talent gap in the social sector at all levels – not enough talented young people are entering the Sector, those in the Sector receive limited or no skill building to improve role readiness and finally, at the senior levels, the internal leadership pipeline is impoverished.

Aritra seeks to create 100 senior leaders who will build strong organizations, in turn amplifying social impact.

The Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIMB), Dr. Reddy’s Foundation and Phicus Social Solutions have come together to conceive Aritra.
