About INDAM 2024

Today’s global imperative is to place people at the center of organizational activities. Creating impact is thus a function of responsible leadership and sustainable business practices. Businesses can make a positive difference in society and the environment while being innovative and profitable. Sustainable business practices are actions that companies take to minimize their negative impact on the environment, society, and stakeholders. This includes initiatives like reducing waste and carbon emissions, promoting diversity and inclusion, and ensuring fair labor practices.

The rate of change in technology and its impact on business and customers is accelerating. On the one hand, we have generative AI (Artificial Intelligence), augmented and virtual reality, personal wearables that are more advanced at health tracking, autonomous vehicles getting more sophisticated, and many more such instances on the cusp of creating further business disruption. On the other, we have a pronounced need for inclusive practices to foster diversity in organizations and address the societal fractures  at personal, societal, and environmental levels. Responsible leadership and sustainable business practices can create a positive impact by benefiting the company’s bottom line and creating value for society and the environment.

INDAM 2024 intends to provide academicians, scholars, practitioners as well as policymakers a platform to discuss these technological forces and societal and environmental phenomena to understand how businesses and organizations can be catalysts for people development and societal advancements. The conference seeks to provide a platform for management thinkers to push the boundaries of management science and philosophy in all functional and interdisciplinary areas related to business and organizations.
