Centre for Policy Studies conducted the third session of the “Impact Talks” series on ‘People, Opinions & Public Policy’ by Mr. Simran Grover. This event happened on January 9, 2021. Organized and moderated by Ms. Chitranjali Tiwari, we were privileged to have Simran Grover to be a part of our series. Simran Grover, is an energy professional with 12+ years of experience across oil and gas, renewables and power distribution. His professional journey across corporate and social development domains has culminated in creation of Bask Research – a human centric organisation striving energy equity, climate change. In this interactive session, Mr. Grover shared with us the real-world dimensions of Public Policy and Governance – using the case studies from his work at Bask. The session was attended by students from UMass/PGDAR batch 2020, faculty from IM and Dean of Research and Design (Dr. Naidu) as active listeners and participants in discussion. Simran shared with the audience the opportunities in public policy, challenges, and critical aspects of policymaking through his experience in the sector. This session was organized keeping in mind the course requirements of the public policy students at JKLU but it benefitted the audience in general.
