ITEC has launched the February edition of its quarterly Newsletter. It is an attempt to highlight a myriad range of issues from understanding the issues that women face in the IT field to the effect of an outsourcing bill in the US to the invisible censorship of internet in India. We have also attempted to kindle the cultural & social spirit in IT employees through a movie review, an interview with a National Award winning director and a poem on caste walls. Read along & write to us with your suggestions.
Raking up the cultural and creative sides of the IT/ITeS Employees in particular and the public in general remains one of the main objectives of ITEC. We took a big stride in this direction on Dec 17, 3 pm at Mitra Jyoti School at HSR Layout by inaugurating ITEC's Film Club.
Cheating has become prevalent in the name of IT/ITeS companies for the past few years in Bangalore. Many fresh and vulnerable employees who come to Bangalore in the hope of building a career have been victims of this deception. ITEC, a welfare & support organization for IT /ITES Employees, has been at the forefront to fight against such fraudulent practices in the IT Industry.
ITEC is launching a progressive film club from IT folks. ITEC plans to screen progressive and socially relevant movies and documentaries in different parts of Bangalore starting from December 2011. A discussion on the movie and the issues it tries to address would be conducted along with the screening.
The inaugural movie is "Offside", directed by Jafar Panahi, the acclaimed film director who has been put behind the bars and banned from film making in Iran.
