Diversity and inclusion are key aspects of promoting an equitable, fair, and inclusive economy. From a business perspective as well, diversity and inclusion have become essential elements as a diverse workforce brings in a range of skills and enhances innovation and creativity, greater productivity and improved decision making. This track will cover some of these themes and discuss the role of industry in creating a more diverse and resilient workforce.
Session: Diverse, Equal & Inclusive World of Work: An Imperative in a World of Differences
With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, UN Member States pledged to ensure “no one will be left behind” and to “endeavour to reach the furthest behind first.” Diversity and inclusion today are placed at the centre of development, with their importance growing more than ever before. In a world of rising differences - of opinions, choices and ideologies - industry can be seen as the unifying force that takes along all people across genders, disabilities, castes, cultures, and sexual orientations, in its growth journey.
How can Indian industry work towards an inclusive and equitable future? What initiatives can be taken to fulfil our dream of India being a ‘developed’ country over the next 25 years?
