India scholars and experts will discuss perspectives on topics related to gender, holistic medicine and business in India during Kennesaw State University’s inaugural India Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2:30 to 5 p.m. Friday in the Student Center and university rooms on the KSU campus, 1000 Chastain Road in Kennesaw.

The free, daylong public event will feature a diverse lineup of speakers, including business leaders, foreign policy experts, government officials and scholars who will showcase two sides of India — a vibrant, fast-growing economy and a society faced with women’s issues, poverty and corruption. Panel discussions will include what religion means and how it is practiced in the Indian context; legal and cultural issues related to companies interested in investing in India; student study abroad experiences in India; gender issues in the Indian subcontinent; alternative medicine practices such as homeopathy, Reiki and yoga for healing; and human resources, legal and accounting issues related to outsourcing jobs and services to India from the U.S.

The event is organized by KSU’s India China America Institute in the Michael J. Coles College of Business in partnership with the Consulate of India in Atlanta, KSU’s Indian Faculty and Staff Association and the Institute for Global Initiatives.
