About Us

We are reimagining how Indian businesses can build open and inclusive workplaces. We are a team of scientists and sociologists who believe that data and science can overcome barriers to enabling diversity and inclusion in an organisation. Which is why we are pioneering data-driven approach to diversity and inclusion.

We partner with business of all types and sizes – from a large software enterprise that's interested in attracting more women developers to a national retail chain that wants an inclusive culture on the shop floor. We are just getting started.

Drop us a line at hello@serein.in. We'd love to hear from you.
