Shilpa Ravi, Vice Chairperson – Delhi School of Excellence

Amid the global turbulence wrought by the Covid-19 pandemic, a profound spotlight has illuminated the leadership prowess of women. In a time of crisis, their adeptness at navigating uncertainty and instilling confidence has garnered widespread recognition. Recent studies reveal a notable divergence in leadership effectiveness between men and women, with women consistently rated higher across various competencies. This pattern suggests a natural inclination towards resilience and efficacy during challenging times.

Noteworthy among these trailblazers is Shilpa Ravi, the esteemed Chairperson of Delhi School of Excellence. As a visionary leader in the field of education, Shilpa exemplifies the essence of pragmatic leadership. Her unwavering commitment to fostering holistic development and nurturing young minds underscores the profound impact of women in leadership roles.

Guided by Legacy

During a brief conversational interaction with Shilpa Ravi, we asked her what led her towards the field of education, and she shared – “One becomes what one sees. My parents have undoubtedly been my role models and I owe them a lot for what I am today”. Having been brought up in a household where her mother was a teacher who homeschooled her, and her dad who was an inspirational figure not only to her but to others as well, it was a big gap to fill when Shilpa Ravi took over as the Chairperson of DSE Group of Institutions. “My vision is to envision their dream to foster in young minds ethical, social and moral values to help them bloom into philanthropic and pledged citizens”, she added.

As the Chairperson, Shilpa Ravi motivates a positive growth mindset among all the stakeholders across the group of institutions, while also working relentlessly towards uplifting the already set benchmarks of educational excellence.

This holistic approach to education serves as the foundation for the school’s remarkable success, attributed to the concerted efforts of a dedicated team committed to excellence in pedagogy.

Fostering Moral Integrity

In today’s educational landscape, one of the foremost challenges confronting educators is the decline in students’ moral values. Recognizing this pressing issue, Shilpa Ravi emphasizes the importance of addressing it within the classroom confines. With a compassionate understanding that each child is unique, she advocates for a customized approach rather than a one-size-fits-all solution.

Under her capable leadership at DSE, students are exposed to a range of life skills activities meticulously designed to foster a harmonious balance between emotional intelligence (EQ) and intellectual intelligence (IQ). These activities play a crucial role in shaping students into well-rounded individuals, characterized by commendable accountability, enviable integrity, and conscientious responsibility.

A Journey of Self Discovery

Describing herself as an intrepid explorer with a deep love for traveling, Shilpa Ravi embraces the philosophy of “Know Thyself.” She finds solace and inspiration in spirituality, utilizing it as a tool for self-reflection, grounding, and cultivating gratitude for life’s blessings.
