An enhanced Health Insurance Plan for our employees based in India covers partners (same-sex, domestic, civil) as dependents, gender conformation surgeries, coverage for surrogacy, egg freezing procedures and mental health therapy.
#AllyForChange is a powerful three-part learning program curated by the DEI team replete with self-reflection exercises, personal stories, practices from across the world and a host of learning resources targeted towards building allyship and nurturing inclusive workplaces and communities.
Stigmatizing someone for being different, makes room for discrimination. Otherness can’t come in the way of belongingness.
Don’t let the world tell you who you are. Or should be. Choose any colour or, identity you feel comfortable with. We’re all different.
#GenderIdentity and #Sexuality are not options. This is a spectrum that accepts that human experiences are infinite.
Through the year, awareness and learning interventions through personal story-telling, interviews with experts, blogs and perspectives continue to strengthen the cultural fabric.
