We welcome you to participate in TAKEPRIDE 2019 to be held from 15th to 17th March, 2019 at Holiday Inn, Goa. It’s been a sunny year for Yi Chapters, including our new ones, with an amazing spell of highs! This 2019 meet is all set to be a BIG STEP forward where we, Young Indians, will be looking at Level Next in terms of our collective aspirations, aims, and activities!
TAKEPRIDE 2019 embodies and celebrates the spirit of all that is Yi, creating a strong bond between Yi members across India. Every year, this event is marked by seminars and interactive sessions where celebrities and leaders from various fields share their knowledge and experience. The TAKEPRIDE 2019 theme is ‘UNBOX, UNLEARN, UNLEASH’.
Yes, Yi is all about transformational experiences, and with TAKEPRIDE 2019, we aim to bring you many such. With pride in our Nation, in Yi, in ourselves, we can achieve the unachievable!
Yi was founded in 2002 as an integral part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) to focus on issues of National importance and to inspire a generational change in the economic, social, and happiness quotient of India. Yi instills pride in the youth of India, motivating them to be catalysts of positive transformation and an integral part of Nation building!
TAKEPRIDE is the marquee annual event of Yi. Over the years, we have created a microcosm of exceptional minds to engage and inspire the youth of India. Every year, we see a congregation of more than 800 Young Indians – leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals who are the agents of change. Yes, they are the future of the Nation on whose shoulders lie the responsibility of taking India ahead toward progress. Beginning with a broadminded and inclusive outlook and a strong will to turn words into action, TAKEPRIDE is all about working together for a better India.
UNBOX presents an out-of-the-box learning opportunity. You will find yourself being spoilt for choice as you scramble to make the most of the two days in Goa. Along with interesting lectures on ‘Blockchain Concepts’ and ‘Start-up Investing’, you’ll really enjoy the breakout sessions and beach sports!
UNLEARN is a way to assimilate into the ‘school of life’ as multi-disciplinary experiences shared by Subject Matter Experts usher in refreshing ideas and perspectives! Yes, they challenge conventional thought processes. Who said failure cannot come with learning? Why do we have to only have mainstream learning sessions? How about a holistic way forward? Yi is itself a school for so many of us, isn’t it?! Of course we can have a back-to-school dress code for one of the days as we ‘unlearn’!!
UNLEASH your ‘youth power’ by standing together, standing tall! Hailing from different geographies—united as Indians—Yi is all about members who know that they can be the change they wish to see. It is a collective march together into the New Year. Well, did anyone also hear about a party on the beach? Come, let’s meet at GOA!!
