Talking about the latest edition of IC3, Mr. Ganesh Kohli, Founding President, IC3 Movement & Chair, 2019 IC3 Conference said, “IC3’s mission is not just to host a large conference but to help build and develop a robust career and college counseling department in every school. The Annual IC3 Conference will be a transformative week which will see the coming together of 1000+ educators from 30+ countries. The conference will feature keynote addresses, networking opportunities and 40+ breakout sessions for counselors/teachers, school principals and university representatives.”
The Annual IC3 Conference is designed to bring together educators from every segment of higher education for a collaborative dialogue on issues that drive sustainable and inclusive counseling practices focused on student success. With a view that career and college counseling is as important as teaching Mathematics or English in high schools, IC3 aims to empower high schools with professional development opportunities to ensure that students find the best answers to questions like “what to study,” “where to study,” and “how to make it happen.” Through the Annual IC3 Conference, IC3 Regional Forums and the IC3 Institute, the IC3 movement envisions that every high school in South Asia and the surrounding region will run a robust, well-resourced career and college counseling office. IC3 has proven instrumental in driving awareness and providing professional, innovative and creative counselling ideas to bring about a transformation in the admissions practices.
