International Women’s Day | Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Where does India Inc stand on DEI in 2022?

In order to deep dive into these gaps, Nikore Associates undertook an analysis of over 500 DEI initiatives implemented by Nifty50 companies in the last two years of the pandemic as a case study. This analysis has shown that DEI initiatives are clustered into 4 major categories – maternity benefits (96%), prevention of sexual harassment (100%), mentoring for senior leadership (80%), and diversity hiring policies (94%) with 76% of Nifty50 companies implementing all four of these “traditional” DEI initiatives. It can also be observed that a large proportion of these actions ensure statutory compliance, such as the six-month maternity leave (Maternity Benefits Act, 2017) and setting up the internal complaints committees (Prevention of Sexual Harassment Act, 2013).
