We just concluded what has turned out over the past three years to be India’s largest Conference on D&I in its sheer volume of content – The Working Mother and Avtar Best of the Best Conference (BoB) for 2019. We are absolutely mesmerized by the giant of a conference that BoB has grown into and we are delighted tobe receiving similar responses consistently from the delegate companies, some of the biggest names in the country, across industries. There is a sense of overwhelming excitement and a deep interest to soak in all that is unfolding at the conference and we are blown away, to say the least. As we relive the moments of Nov 8th (Conference Day), we realize that great structures are built on seemingly basic combination of steel and sand – in this case, Trust and Care. Let me explain.
These companies like yours, that are working towards the Business goals, keen on balance sheet, watching stock markets, tracking competition and creating strategies to out-do one another, come together under this one roof, intent on a single purpose – that of creating inclusive workplaces. This purpose has in turn given all, a strength that is unique and a never-seen-or-felt-before synergy. And it is this that drives each of the companies to do something that is otherwise unthinkable – to share. The stalwarts are opening up on the company data, policies and practices around Diversity and Inclusion. Every company is extremely enthusiastic and forthcoming in sharing their best practices and success stories which can help even their competitors and other organizations to build a culture of Diversity and Inclusion. Everyone realizes the importance of an ecosystem that will inherit these qualities. This is crucial not only for the growth and development of one’s own business but to the overall health of the ecosystem. This mindset change is unprecedented and what’s more, it is happening at the right time! The country is poised for the long-due development and this all-inclusive growth mindset can catapult us closer to the goal.
We are determined to provide this remarkable platform year on year and want to have more organizations benefit through this unique tool that is simple yet powerful enough to transform the way companies work and grow – the simple tool of Sharing. Do come, share and be a part of the growth story, year on year!
