The Department of Management Studies (DoMS), IIT Madras, organised ‘TRANSCEND’ — a social run to raise awareness about the social, political and economical rights of transgenders among the student population. The run was flagged off by the chief guest Kalki Subramaniam, a successful transgender woman, and the founder of the Sahodari Foundation, which has been working towards establishing social, economic, and environmental justice for transgenders, intersex and gender non-conforming people.

The Registrar of IIT-Madras, VG Bhooma, who was present on the occasion, felicitated the chief guest, Kalki Subramaniam.
