Panel Discussion- Role of managers and leaders in building an inclusive culture

Marching Sheep presents a panel discussion on the Role of Managers and Leaders in building an inclusive culture.
Employees experience an organization through their managers. 
How managers and leaders support employees, of all backgrounds, genders, ethnicity, sexuality, and allow them to bring their authentic selves to work, to bring their best forward defines the true culture of an organization. Leaders and Managers play a critical role in building elements of a culture of belonging.

Panel Discussion on ‘The International Day for Persons with Disability’

Disability is a particular way of being, moving, thinking, hearing, seeing, emoting, processing, expressing or even living. The particular way that a person experiences disability defines their life in the sense that it’s the platform upon which they filter and see their world; but it does not define them by way of saying that they can’t be or do whatever they want. Just because someone has different limits than others, does not mean that they are unable to perform a job or contribute meaningfully or lead a full life.
On the occasion of ‘The International Day for Persons with Disability’, we at Marching Sheep held a Panel Discussion with leaders from different industries and advocates of Disability Inclusion, who shared their experiences and valuable perspectives on how we can make a tangible difference in our #workplaces, our thinking and our mindset to help persons with disability live a life without discrimination.

Panel Discussion- Broadening narrative of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in virtual and hybrid working models

We all know how the landscape of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has changed over the last few years. It has now extended beyond gender and includes other important facets such as age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, mindsets, people with disabilities to name a few.

But we see the narrative of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion changing even further in the new hybrid ways of working. In the hybrid workplace different categories have emerged among employees: like those who are in the office and those who are remote. So what are organizations doing to create an even playing field for all in this environment?

With the same thought, Marching Sheep brings to you its next Panel Discussion on “The Broadening Narrative of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Virtual and Hybrid Working Models”. We have an illustrious panel comprising of industry leaders Amit Chincholikar from Tata Consumer ProductsManish Sinha from Mahindra and Mahindra Limited [Automotive and Farm Equipment Business]Manvi Sushil (She/Her/Hers) from Avery DennisonSheetal Sandhu from ICRA and Raman Kumar Singh from ABB, who will share their insightsexperiences and views on integrating different aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion in today’s times. So, mark the date, 6th August, on your calendar and join us live on our social media platforms. We look forward to seeing you at the Panel Discussion!
