Hyderabad: The International Foundation for Crime Prevention and Victim Care (PCVC), a Chennai-based non-profit organisation, launched the initiative ‘Workspace Diversity and Inclusion: From Legality to Cultural Change’ with support from the US Consulate General Hyderabad. As part of the initiative, an audio-visual learning toolkit was introduced at a virtual event.
The event was attended by several prominent people, including Uma Rao, Vice President – Human Resources, Ashok Leyland, David Moyer, Public Affairs Officer, US Consulate Hyderabad, and Rashmi Singh, Executive Director – Programmes, PCVC.
The easy-to-use, self-administrable audio-visual toolkit will help the organisation to implement practices and policies to create safe, respectful and healthy workspaces. It can be used by any organisation or company as an effective, standalone training tool to facilitate dialogue on diversity and inclusion. Representatives of companies from diverse sectors are being invited to sign up for the free pilot workshops, based on their interest, availability and alignment of the issues of diversity and inclusion with their core values.
David Moyer said, “The United States is committed to ending violence and discrimination of all kinds at workplaces, including those based on sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or sex characteristics.” Adding to it, Uma Rao shared that diversity and inclusion helps to build a community that constantly broadens its perspectives and celebrates the uniqueness of each individual and their contributions.
“We as PCVC believe that while it is critical for women and queer communities to have safe and respectful homes, it is equally important that workplaces too have culture, practices and policies which embraces them,” shared Rashmi Singh, in her address.
