" Motivated by the quote, 'Love All, Serve All' I am keen on finding the relevance of Economics and its impact on the man-made divisions of society. I believe that the Millennium Fellowship is a step towards mitigating Economic and Gender inequality. By creating a global social network, I would be able to gain multiple perspectives in approaching a particular SDG. This fellowship will fuel my passion and perseverance by directing it towards Equality. "
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.
