International Research Conference on Mindfulness 2022 (IRCM 2022)

IIMBG Conference IRCM 2022

About Conference

In recent years, an increasing trend can be observed on mindfulness training, practice, and research as a technique for organizational well-being, as a means for reflection and learning, human resource practice, self-awareness and emotion regulation for leaders, improving social relationships in the workplace, increasing employee resilience and performance, developing emotionally mature and socially responsible managers, and to address the new-normal. Also, mindfulness is being practiced as technique of stress reduction, management of chronic pain, behavioural therapy, and other areas. On-going pandemic has created a stressful work environment for managers requiring them to make quick decisions amid uncertainties and insufficient information to resolve the ongoing issues, and probably mindfulness could be the answer to many of the management and social issues of the current times. The need of the hour is to bring together researchers, practitioners and academicians to exchange and share their experiences and research in various fields of ‘Mindfulness in Business Context’. The idea is to provide an opportunity to discuss how the concepts and practices of mindfulness can be incorporated in the business context and create organizations which are truly mindful. It also provides an interdisciplinary platform to highlight the importance of developing mindful organizations, business leaders, employees.


About IIM Bodh Gaya


The Indian Institutes of Management have been the archetype of management schooling in India since their foundation after our independence in 1947. IIMs are perceived as the most prestigious and elite B-schools in India which lay emphasis on practical experience and critical thinking instead of rote learning and conventional academic schedule. Building on the grand heritage of the IIM brand, IIM Bodh Gaya fosters a culture and curriculum whose sole purpose is to create socially responsible managers and emotionally mature leaders. A dynamic curriculum in consonance with academics and industry experts provides the students with the opportunities to master new skills and explore diverse perspectives. Apart from the conventional classroom setup, IIM Bodh Gaya lays emphasis on practical learning as students partake in case studies, sessions with industry experts, live projects, etc. The institute’s thrust on meaningful research is evident through the credentials and accomplishments of its faculty that has publications in ABDC and Scopus listed journals of repute. In a short span of time, IIM Bodh Gaya has strengthened its position in the corporate world, with its students contributing in illustrious business organizations of the country.


IIM Bodh Gaya acknowledges the significance of exposure to global standards and contemporary trends for enrichment of its students’ learning experience. In order to bring that international exposure and cultural diversity to the campus, the institute has established collaborations with several reputed institutions in France, Venezuela, Russia, Mexico, Italy and S. Korea while discussions are underway with many other international universities across the globe.


Historically, the eastern part of the country has been an eminent seat of learning with ancient universities of Nalanda and Vikramshila where learners from all over the world congregated for pursuit of knowledge. Having been recognized as a key Buddhist destination, Bodh Gaya attracts millions of tourists every year. An ancient seat of learning that represents one of the prominent paths to enlightenment, Bodh Gaya is home to Mahabodhi Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and several other notable temples and monasteries. Nestled in Bodh Gaya is the iconic 80 ft. statue of Buddha and Indosan Nippon temple that was constructed in 1972 and has a gallery of Japanese art. This land of enlightenment continues to serve as a source of inspiration for IIM Bodh Gaya in its journey to become The Enlightening IIM.
