Diversity and Equal Opportunity

Workforce diversity
Tata Steel believes that employees from different backgrounds and of different genders, ages etc, bring unique sets of capabilities for improved performance of the team and encourage the formation of a diverse and cosmopolitan workforce.

In 2009-10 Tata Steel had launched SWATI (Steel women Aspirational Team Initiatives) to enable its female employees both officers and non officers, to realise their aspirations.

A structured mechanism, it has core committee and nine sub -committees across the country.

The main initiatives of SWATI are

  • Legal Awareness Program
  • Health Education Program
  • Personality Development Program
  • Women Empowerment Program - TWU
  • Computer Literacy
  • Empowerment through Sports and Adventure Sports

The gender wise distribution of the officers at various levels in the governance structure of the management is shown in the pyramid below:

During the year, the internationally know speaker Mr Sam Swaminathan was invited by SWATI to speak to its member at a seminar on "Leading Ladies - The New Reality."

Seminar faculty were invited from the premier management institute XLRI for a counseling programme cum workshop.

SWATI also regularly nominates its members for programmes and workshop hosted by "Women in Leadership."
