Anjali Pandey awarded at CII Excon
Anjali Pandey, Engines and Components Business Unit Leader, Cummins India bagged the Committed Leader’ award at the recently concluded CII Excon 2K21. She has been recognised for her outstanding commitment in promoting diversity, equity, and Inclusion in the workplace. After receiving the award, Pandey commented, “I am grateful to CII EXCON for honouring me with this distinguished award since it is a true reflection of our efforts of creating a workplace where our people win with the power of difference. Of the opinion that diversity and inclusion are not just the right things to do but it is the right way of running the business by fully capitalising on the value that diversity can bring, she cited active measures at Cummins India to increase its female representation over the past few years. This is known to have resulted in an increased gender diversity ratio from five to 32 per cent over the last two decades. The company also drives various initiatives to provide equal opportunities to women, including ‘Women in Technology’, gender balance during recruitment, ensuring pay parity, gender-neutral workstations, Cummins women’s empowerment network, flexible work arrangements, and award-winning breast feeding friendly facilities for new mothers, all of which are strongly supported by leadership.
