About Us

We are reimagining how Indian businesses can build open and inclusive workplaces. We are a team of scientists, sociologists and lawyers 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 work closely with leadership and HR heads to design bias free
recruitment strategies.

We serve as external member to the Internal Committee (IC) of several companies. Our data driven approach assists leadership better understand employee’s experience of company culture and helps you stand out as an employer of choice!
