The program Scheme for Her Empowerment in Engineering education (SHE) is initiated at GCE Kannur which was the change project undertaken under AICTE- UKERI scheme. On identification of the burning need of empowering the girl students of GCE Kannur, it was decided to take a more assertive role in imparting them the exposure and experience they need to eventually fulfill their career demands and to assume leadership roles facing all challenges. The SHE program proposes to enable our girl students to realize how much potential and support they require to be great leaders in technical fields. The coordinators of SHE program have well identified the value of our resourceful alumni and have ensured their fruitful participation in gathering suggestions and information. The other promising contributors to the program are the teaching fraternity of GCEK, resource persons from external agencies and experts from different walks of life. The SHE program also seeks all the support from PTA and the HRD Cell of GCEK.
To create professionally successful and personally fulfilled women engineers.
“It has always bothered me how a lot of women around us drop out halfway through their career, due to various reasons. SHE GCEK aims to find those reasons and takes steps to solve them. They’re a group of wonderful girls who support and raise each other up. I would like to wish them the best in all their future endeavours!”
“Whom do you admire most is a question one faces often. For me, it is not someone who has reached a position of eminence. For me, it is a person who is trying each day to become a better person the next day. I find that SHE is devoted to this idea. That makes each and everyone of SHEs a person I admire.”
“SHE resonates with our responsibility to pave a better road for the future of the girls in engineering education , ensuring their meritocracy, hardwork , and perseverance in scaling the heights.”
“Woman empowerment program namely SHE, founded in GCE Kannur aims at skill development, capacity building and motivation of woman engineers. The objective is to enable girl students to be successful in life, not just having some sort of good academic performance in the campus. She should repeat her success stories throughout, at the same time battle against bottle-necks.”
“The inevitable realization that the women empowerment can only ensure a holistic progress in society, was the core idea in implementing the change management project ‘SHE’ in GCEK. SHE is planned to be such an initiative to educate and train our academically excellent girl students of GCEK to become self developed, motivated and skilled leaders capable of igniting and sustaining team work to envisage excellence in Engineering. ”
“I have had the fortune to be part of this journey from the beginning. It is good and satisfying to see the students work towards their goal. The various relentless initiatives from different students and alumni to make this program a success is commendable. I would like to tell all the upcoming students , you have this opportunity served in a silver platter to you. Grab it and keep honing and improving your skills on a continuous basis. Your are limited by your dream. Dream of having a successful and exemplary career. Wishing all the best to all the students .”
“It has been a delight to be a part of SHE since its inception and to see SHE grow and spread her wings wide. I believe that your aspirations are defined by your exposure and your support system - at its core, SHE aims to build a community of women who can push each other to aim high, and to make what felt like the impossible seem possible, on top of building each individual’s capability. I think we're on track.”
