My Sustainability Goals for 2021:

1. To increase the representation and inclusion of women in the workforce. Eliminate unconscious bias and stereotypes by providing training and assisting companies in implementing higher criteria around HR procedures and policies such as hiring, promotion and appraisal reviews. Create more inclusive workplaces where quotas are not the primary driver, rather implementing these changes at their overall core objectives.

2. To drive a positive impact in the workforce by implementing more creative and tailored D&I strategies that can trigger a more inclusive and diverse organisational culture.

3. Create corporate awareness and keep working with the government in addressing gender equality issues, especially around working mothers.
