Her vast experience in the field of Skill training and her dynamic career profile reflected through out her presentation. She emphasized in making skill learning aspirational. She opined that even though skilled labourers are in high demand, they are still paid less and pointed that this has to change. She said that Sector Skill Councils, CEO's of Govt organizations, Training service providers, and other stakeholders should come together to resolve the challenges presently faced in Skill training. Assessments and certification are still compromised and this needs to be addressed. Skill training should start at an early stage and should be part of the curriculum, she said.

The session was enlightening as well as thought provoking and was well appreciated by the audience.
