CII Yi

Greetings from CII-Yi!

A committee known for organising events with a difference. Take Jamshedpur Run for example - flagged off by Prof Ashis Pani (Dean Academics), the flagship XL marathon event which draws participants of all ages not only from within XLRI, but also attracts the lovely people of Jamshedpur who have been closely associating with this event and participate every year enthusiastically.

Or how about the nail-biting Silent Auction, where everything and anything is on offer - right from stuff from graduating seniors, to a lesson in ukulele. From professors to students, everyone has something to offer, and something to bid upon. INR 95k collected from the auction was donated to Indian Cancer Society. This is what makes Diwali, XL wali Diwali.

Think EV and then add the perfect measure of business acumen into it and here is where you get Tycoon’s Gambit which CII-Yi organises with EV. In this battle of wits, teams give their all while running business simulations, owning businesses and making decisions - just like a tycoon would do.

In the hands of the child, lies the future of our world, and to celebrate the untapped potential of children, CII-YI organised Kshitij, our flagship event where 850+ students from the underprivileged schools of Jamshedpur got a stage to display their talent at a city level scale. This event also recognises the talent of students by awarding them with scholarships. From poetry to drama, dance, storytelling, yoga, beat-boxing and rapping, they have all kinds of talent. A truly enriching and humbling experience for anyone who witnesses the grandeur and magic these little bundles of joy create when they set the stage on fire. And to top it all, the smile on the faces as they leave at the end of the event is simply priceless.

Mesmerising speakers + their extraordinary stories is only at TEDxXLRI. An event which brings great minds at one stage and witness an epiphany of 'Ideas worth spreading'. Organised by CII-YI, TEDxXLRI 2020, hosted 7 eminent speakers this year from diverse backgrounds celebrating the power of ideas.
