In celebration of RP’s 15th anniversary, RP’s Diploma in Social Enterprise Management (DSEM) organised a forum on 15 September 2017. The forum was entitled Breaking the Millennial Code.

A panel discussion led by Associate Professor Faishal bin Ibrahim, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Social and Family Development alongside fi ve outstanding industry partners, delved into the challenges faced in activating millennial audiences to tackle social issues through entrepreneurship. Attendees also gained 15 takeaways from research conducted by DSEM on the millennials’ involvement in the social innovation scene. The forum also showcased 15 RP student-industry projects.

One of the day’s highlights was the renewal of a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with *SCAPE for further collaboration. *SCAPE will extend its resources to assist students with their Final Year Projects, as well as offer internship positions in social enterprises and related areas.
