Genpact, Ashoka University partner to launch Centre for Women\'s Leadership

The Centre will carry out research, establish thought leadership and conduct proactive advocacy to promote equality and women\'s leadership.

With a vision to drive gender-inclusive growth that empowers and promotes women’s leadership across sectors in the country, Genpact Limited, a global leader in designing, transforming, and running intelligent business operations, and Ashoka University, a new liberal arts university have partnered to create and launch the ‘Genpact Centre for Women’s Leadership’ (GCWL). 

This first-of-its-kind industry-academia partnership is a Corporate Social Responsibility effort to drive gender-inclusive growth with a vision to create a balanced distribution of income, resources and decision making powers across sectors.

The Centre will carry out research, establish thought leadership and conduct proactive advocacy to help create contemporary laws and policies that promote equality and women’s leadership. It will co-create a networking platform for all stakeholders working on issues of women’s empowerment.

Moreover, the Centre will also conduct courses, training and mentorship programmes to develop and enhance leadership skills. It aims to create a knowledge bank which will help establish premium standards in leadership development and add to the next generation of women leaders from India.

Speaking at the launch of the Centre, Tiger Tyagarajan, President & CEO, Genpact said, “We’re delighted to partner with a pioneering educational institute like Ashoka University to drive a cause that I personally believe in and drive very strongly – women’s leadership. Through the GCWL, we aim to create an ecosystem of knowledge, resources and advocacy that will help create the next generation of women in leadership roles.”

Dr Pramath Raj Sinha, Founder & Trustee, Ashoka University, said, “Ashoka University’s mission is to groom conscious leaders for India.  The GCWL is our most deliberate and public commitment to that mission.  It is also distinctive in that it is likely the first example globally of such an initiative being housed in a co-educational setting, recognising that impacting women's leadership is also about grooming gender-sensitive men as leaders.”

The Centre will host an annual marquee event to showcase its activities and achievements by women, regular workshops, seminars and guest speakers. This Centre will create a common ground for current and emergent leaders to connect, support, educate and empower one another.
