NITIE has taken a social initiative to promote the Government of India's National Education Policy (NEP), 2020. Various online counselling sessions have been organized since February 2021 under the Parivartan Forum of NITIE to help children coming from rural areas and to show them the right path through NITIE Diversity Equity and Inclusion Cell. 

The students of NITIE worked as mentors to class 6-9 students from rural schools of India on various aspects of life skills, technology, human and social values, entrepreneurial mindset and career opportunities. So far, more than 2,500 online counselling sessions, various competitions, career guidance sessions and development training sessions have been organized under this program. 

Under the National Education Policy 2020, NITIE is now going a step further with the NITIE Inclusion Initiative for Children's Education by providing benefits of this program to school students living near NITIE as well.  

With this objective, Parivartan will also start an offline mentoring program. The students of NITIE will mentor 30 students from Passpoli NITIE Marathi School and Passpoli Garden School with the help of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation under the first phase of this program. The DEI team of NITIE (Prof. Upasna A Agarwal, DEI-Chair, Prof. Nikhil K. Mehta, Coordinator-Parivartan, Prof. Poonam Singh and Prof. Megha Gupta) is continuously working on the transformational activities.
