"There is no place for discrimination at Godrej.
Only place for open hearts and minds."
We value Diversity

We value Diversity

We will continue to be an employer of choice by attracting and nurturing employees who are representative of the wider society at large, and by co-creating an organisation where all employees are treated equally and diverse opinions, ideas and ways of being are respected. We will focus on multiple and intersecting dimensions of diversity in our work at Godrej, such as Gender, People With Disabilities and LGBTQ, and participate in coalitions of change alongside other organisations and stakeholders outside Godrej. We will also strive to influence our customers, collaborators and other stakeholders about the importance and impact of Diversity & Inclusion through our public communication channels.


Our philosophy


We think of inclusion as a series of nudges - both individual and organisational. Our approach to inclusion is persuasive, iterative and experimental.

We are deeply committed to authenticity. We like to showcase our true self not just our best self. This means being self-critical at times, and sharing our failures as well as successes with the world.

Sharing is a vital part of our philosophy. We also see ourselves as part of the larger ecosystem. While we may compete in the marketplace, we can't compete in the inclusion space. When more organisations become inclusive, everyone wins. We are committed to sharing our journey with others and would also love to learn from other organisations.

Intersectionality, a term coined by Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw, is a lens for seeing the way in which various forms of inequality operate alongside each other. We strive to be intersectional in our approach.


An equal opportunities

We do not tolerate any form of discrimination on the basis of nationality, race, colour, religion, caste, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, or marital status and allow for equal opportunities for all our team members. Godrej Industries Limited and Associate Companies also subscribes to the CII-ASSOCHAM Code of Conduct for Affirmative Action.
