Speaking about this trend, Dr. Devi Singh, Director, IIM Lucknow said that the institute was looking at having a class which has a broad base in terms of diversity – gender wise, background wise and also in terms of prior work experience. He is happy that to some extent the institute has been successful in this objective but there are still many steps to be taken to create an ideal diverse environment.
