On September 22nd, Bolloré Logistics South Asia’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Ms. Sasmita MOHANTY, was invited to be one of the panelist of the Most Powerful Business Woman hosted by Business Today, at the ITC Grand Central, in Mumbai, India.
Committed to recognizing the success and achievements of women in business, the Business Today Most Powerful Women Awards celebrate women who are the driving force behind their business, whilst also driving the equality agenda within their organization and beyond. These awards are a celebration of the female leaders redefining business today and tomorrow.
During this event, Ms. Sasmita MOHANTY and other women leaders across various industry came together to share and discuss best practices to address this challenge.
Bolloré Logistics is proud to support powerful women around the world and to guaranty women equality and empowerment within its global network of collaborators.
This initiative echoes the policy deployed internationally since 2018 by Bolloré Logistics in favor of diversity and social inclusion, which is also part of the social aspect of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program "Powering Sustainable Logistics".
The company clearly demonstrates its willingness to act as a committed employer, paying particular attention to the career paths of its employees. Bolloré Logistics thus undertakes, with qualifications and equal skills, to feminize low-representation women's jobs and to reduce the differences in treatment that remain for better gender equality.
While India ranks among the 40 countries where women are the furthest away from employment1, Bolloré Logistics India has seen its female workforce increase from 17% to 20% between 2015 and 2017, the entity also has 19% of female managers in its ranks. By supporting women in their journey towards autonomy and acting for equal opportunities, Bolloré Logistics India is fulfilling its own commitments to diversity, pay equality and social inclusion.
