CII - Regional Conference on Affirmative Action
Emphasizing Inclusive growth
CII is organizing a Regional Conference on Affirmative Action on May 9th, 2018. This conference is one of the steps taken by CII to urge companies to pay special attention to the issues and challenges, so that India rapidly transforms into a vibrant, inclusive and dynamic economy, which capitalizes on the strength of its immense reservoir of labour and further unleashes and develops the vast and underutilized talent of human capital, which is lying dormant at the moment.
The objectives of the conference on affirmative action would be the following:
To have clarity and a clear definition of affirmative action and inclusive growth through input sessions from experts and practitioners and engaging discussions on inclusion and inclusive development from the Dalits, Tribals and Women perspective.
To inform the stakeholders the fruits of implementing Affirmative Action from some of the best practices.
To come up with a regional strategy for CII to advance/ promote affirmative action.
At the end of the Conference, there will be:
Clarity and clear understanding of affirmative action and inclusive growth from the perspective of Dalits, Tribals and Women through a critical analysis with data.
Detailed analysis on progress made so far with best practices from industries both in India and abroad.
An approach/strategy paper on AA for CII that is endorsed by the participants which would clearly spell out present scenario, best practices, tactical and strategic solutions and suggested way forward.
