Harappa, a skill development and career guidance platform, has called for support to ensure steps for gender equality at workplaces through its ‘Break the Bias’ pledge.
“Women continue to encounter challenges in many facets of society especially when it comes to advancing in the workplace. Knowing that this bias exists isn't enough. Action is needed to level the playing field,” Harappa stated in a press communique.
The company, led by a woman CEO Shreyasi Singh, has always strived to make office tables more diverse, equitable and inclusive, the communique further said.
Harappa conducted a behaviour experiment to assess how aware men are about the problems faced by women at the workplace.
"Here we are in 2022, and in spite of the progress made over the past few years, things still aren't always equal in the office, the boardroom, or even the breakout room," says Shreyasi Singh, founder and CEO, Harappa.
"From giving women credit for their own ideas to calling out unacceptable behaviour, there is much more needed to make them feel valued and respected at the workplace. And Harappa's 'Break the Bias' pledge is just one of many gestures to creating a meaningful impact," she added.
Harappa’s curriculum addresses the massive talent needs and employability challenges India faces. Its learning experiences drive transformative career and organisational success using Thrive Skills, an essential set of cognitive, social and behavioural skills.
The company boasts over 4,00,000 learners, and more than 150 corporate and campus clients.
