Hyderabad: The ICFAI Business School (IBS) case ‘Breaking the Code of Silence’, written by Syeda Maseeha Qumer, Dr Debapratim Purkayastha, and Dr Vijaya N Zinnoury (University of Denver, US), has won ‘Outstanding Case Writer’ award organised by UK-based The Case Center.
“IBS’s winning case deals with the highly topical issue of sexual harassment in the workplace and allows instructors to bring critical issues to the classroom and also help find solutions. It provides an opportunity to discuss what to do and, more specifically, what to say when faced with sexual harassment. Broadly, it prepares students and trainees to speak up when confronted with ethical dilemmas,” said Dr Purkayastha, who heads the world-class Case Research Center at IBS.
The winners of other categories of this year’s Case Centre awards include Harvard, Stanford, INSEAD, Kellogg, HEC Paris, etc.
