“Creating a world where there are no longer any glass ceilings to break, and where everyone is encouraged to bring their authentic selves to work, requires a collective endeavour – you and your organisation can play a pivotal role in this transformative movement,” said Sathish Gopalaiah, President, Consulting, Deloitte South Asia.

 

The Bombay Chamber DEI Awards is different from other Awards in this genre. Apart from being a neutral leadership body, the Chamber has grown from its traditional role of advocacy with the government and facilitation of trade and industry to involve the promotion of good governance and ethical conduct in business and public life towards the greater good of society encompassing promotion of skills training, arts and culture, in addition to ensuring equitable and balanced industrial growth in a sustainable manner.

 

The purpose of these Awards is to raise the overall level of awareness, action and policy around DEI and to promote and facilitate the adoption of leading practices in diversity and cross-pollination of effective and forward-looking DEI practices among organisations.
