PUTTING THE ESG
SPOTLIGHT ON DIVERSITY
It is time to take notice
‘Putting the ESG Spotlight on Diversity and Inclusion’ was written as a white paper intended to fulfil The Confederation of Indian Industry, Indian Women Network’s vision to increase women’s representation at various levels across companies, analyse current DEI trends in India and compare them to the global picture, and suggest recommendations for better integration of women on boards.
This paper aims to explore the intersection between Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principals and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives across companies in India. It investigates the extent to which ESG focused policies integrate gender concerns and the subsequent impact on the representation of women.
