AccelHERate: India’s Biggest B2B Conference for Companies Committed to Increasing Women’s Participation in the Indian Workforce

It's Time To AccelHERate

Accelerate Graph

Industry averages in India show that companies employ 30% women at entry level but that this tapers off to 10% at management and a measly 1% in the C-suite.

Studies also showcase that diversity leads to India’s GDP rising by 27%, if female participation matched male levels.*

Don't you think it’s time to AccelHERate?

Then join us as we accelerate the Recruitment, Retention, and Promotion of women in the Indian workplace.

  • Workshop on USING MINDFULNESS TO SENSITIZE HIRING MANAGER BY SHENOMICS

    • Research shows that regardless of how highly educated or previously successful women returning to the workforce are, they are still considered less-than- ideal candidates in the eyes of many recruiters. Even when they do get hired, many face a “motherhood penalty” – a set of biases against working moms and returnees, which ultimately cause many high-potential women to switch jobs or drop out.
    • Sensitizing hiring managers on the most effective ways of managing women returnees and teams that include returnees, therefore, is essential for creating an optimal and supportive environment that enables returnees to thrive and creates win-win outcomes for the organization.
    • This workshop will focus on how we can use research-based methods, such as Mindfulness, for helping managers identify and manage any unconscious biases relating to re-starters, and demonstrate inclusive behaviors that pave the way for a returnee’s success.
  • Workshop on Time to talk: What has to change for women at work, by PwC India

    • The discussion will be around - the career aspirations of women and the ecosystem for their progress.
