Home/ Brand Stories / Join the largest hybrid D&I forum at the 3rd Edition of India Diversity Conclave

India, March 24, 2023:Inclusion is all about inviting people to come together to contribute and meaningfully create a sense of belonging. It reduces employee turnover and increases profits and productivity levels, all while improving employee engagement. Both Inclusion and Belonging focus on encouraging insights while working to decrease racism, homophobia, and sexism.

Spearheading the cultural shift, IDF provides the platform for CEOs, CHRO, and D&I leaders to share their success stories. With a member base of 550+ companies, IDF is furthering the cause of Diversity and Inclusion in the Indian context.

A diverse company does not necessarily equal an inclusive company. While efforts for diversity may increase, the same may only sometimes be valid for equity and inclusion. To address this gap, IDF's upcoming 3rd Edition of India Diversity Conclave focuses on the theme of cultivating a culture of Inclusion and Belonging.

This largest hybrid D&I event of India - the 3rd Edition of India Diversity Conclave 2023 is scheduled on April 6, 2023, and will take place at Hotel Novotel Andheri, Mumbai, from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. With 550+ member companies, 250 + delegates in person, and more than 2000 D&I experts will join virtually; this hybrid event will host some crucial D&I stakeholders of India and the HR community of India. The conclave highlights the gaps in D&I strategies and underlines ways to overcome them.

D&I is the prime agenda for many companies that want to create the right inclusive environment for their employees. To showcase their D&I thought leadership, JSW Steel Ltd, Ingram Micro, Harappa, Anand Rathi Share & Stock Brokers, Owens Corning, and many such organizations have partnered with us.

Sharing her views on the 3rd Edition of India Diversity Conclave, Anisha Motwani, Founder & Director at STN Ventures & Advisory Board Member at IDF, stated, "India Diversity Conclave is where Organizations look diversity and inclusion through metrics beyond gender statistics such that CEOs and top leadership walk the talk & ensure that D&I is deeply rooted in their respective organizations through a well-structured framework. The latest D&I Survey brings light to the gap between intent and reality. It's an eye-opener and will go a long way in setting the baseline for the country to leapfrog from".

At the conclave, the stalwarts will discuss challenges and their probable solutions on topics like the Industry Women Leaders Discussion: Despite modest progress, women are still dramatically underrepresented in leadership. Trialogue: Building the Talent Pipeline: Step towards Innovation, and many more. The theme is Cultivating a Culture of Inclusion and Belonging to understand & inaugurate inclusion in the workplace. The conclave will also present a unique Spotlight Session - Diverse India, Inclusive India: celebrating the journeys of diverse and successful professionals/entrepreneurs with inspiring stories.

The conclave also marks a launch of a Research Report addressing the daily nuances of D&I. For the first time in India, IDF is launching the CEO Pledge that will be signed by leading CEOs of the country, committing to serving as a promise to ensure D&I is deeply rooted in their organizations.

Passionate about furthering the cause of D&I in India, Rishi Kapoor, Head Management Committee, India Diversity Forum, said, "Our D&I philosophy is grounded in three core concepts: 1. Respect for each employee, regardless of their background, identity, or beliefs, etc. 2. Gender balance advancement: We strive to create an environment that fosters gender equality and inclusion at workplace 3. LGBTQ inclusion and disability support: We value the contributions of all our employees, including those who identify as LGBTQ or PWD employees. We are committed to creating an environment of acceptance, understanding, and support for everyone. The 3rd Edition of India Diversity Conclave will bring together thought leaders, practitioners, and experts from across the industry to discuss and debate the need for a comprehensive Diversity & Inclusion policy. The summit will also include panel discussions, workshops, and other interactive sessions to help organizations understand the nuances of D&I and develop ideas for implementation."
