Supportive Business Potential

Equity Diversity And Inclusivity in Corporate India

Conversations around Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) have only strengthened in recent years, all thanks to the booming social media ecosystem, policy initiatives and some forward-thinking court judgements. We must certainly laud the corporates who are ensuring a more supportive and collaborative work environment. It takes a brave heart to challenge the existing norms, especially in a country that is fraught with multiple divisions and prejudices.

Joining us for an invigorating session at BW’s Sustainable World Conclave, Alka Raza, Chairperson, CGEIL, XLRI, Jamshedpur; Aseem Kumar, Executive Director, United Nations Global Compact Network India; Tejashree Joshi, Head – Environment & Sustainability, Godrej & Boyce and Sandeep Chandna, Chief Sustainability Officer, Tech Mahindra discuss how the definition of sustainability has changed over the years, how it must be seen as a social, human and business opportunity and how it helps yield a more inclusive functioning in an organisation. 

While experts agree that taking care of the employees is very important, they also encourage everyone to eventually give back to the planet. Equity, diversity & inclusivity in corporate India are strong aspects to achieve sustainability, they emphasise.
