" I believe that the Millennium Fellowship will help achieve my dream of propagating gender equality, an issue that isn't debated enough according to modern society standards. I hope this will also act as an opportunity to set a pathway for me to eventually work at the United Nations towards global betterment and relief for the underprivileged majority of the world population. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Ivory Tower
Project Ivory Tower is a collaborative research society where members research on the Sustainable Development goals of the UN. Alongside our projects, we also aim to spread social awareness through our website and social media pages. We have undertook two research projects to analyze:
1) The concept of dignified and undignified occupations and their effect on mental health of the workers with special reference to the pandemic.
2) The influence of patriarchy on all the three genders i.e. men, women and the non-binary and how it affects the genders differently in the North/South regions of the country.
