Confederation of Indian Industry’s approach in the area of Affirmative Action includes intervention in four key areas i.e. Entrepreneurship, Employability, Education and Employment. Member companies have reached out to the Scheduled Caste (SC) & Scheduled Tribe (ST) communities using one or more of these interventions. Till now 595 companies across India have accepted CII’s Code of Conduct on Affirmative Action.
It is important to communicate Industry’s actions on Affirmative Action to the Government and opinion makers by aggregating information from CII members on the initiatives taken so far.
Endeavour is an effort by CII to capture and showcase best practices taken up by its members. This would help in encouraging and influencing other members to begin similar initiatives.
