Schindler Igniting Minds (SIM) is Schindler India’s flagship CSR initiative that aims to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) learning among students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Through communication training, it also aims to enhance students’ self-confidence. The initiative pays particular attention to technical education for young women in support of Schindler India’s commitment to Inclusion & Diversity.
The importance of education
SIM is part of Schindler India’s broader CSR program, Fulfil Futures, which places significant importance on education.
Through a series of initiatives, such as SIM, Schindler India hopes to make a positive contribution to poverty reduction by breaking down one of the greatest barriers to equal opportunities.

Through their confidence in their interactions with Thomas, Ashok Ramachandran (President & CEO, Schindler India & South Asia) and his leadership team, it was clear that the communication training is working.
