Our belief is simple: people thrive when they collaborate seamlessly, contributing their unique strengths to help the organization achieve its goals. Together, we have built a workplace where everyone counts, and success knows no boundaries."

Vipin Jamwal
"Diversity brings a wide-angle lens to a group’s perspective and approach on any given task. Each one of us has a vantage point from where we see the world and it differs due to our diverse origin, make, background, experience, and choices that we make in life. In Birlasoft, we absorb inputs coming in from these different viewpoints to enrich our perspective on a given situation. We celebrate this enrichment of perspectives brought about by a diverse group of people.

As a Veteran, I have found acceptance and encouragement to bring in my perspective on key aspects from time to time. Wearing the hat of a DEI representative for my business unit, I am enthused to work on simplifying & demystifying the diversity targets into achievable goals by the key stake holders in the business unit. Overall, I feel empowered and engaged in making a small difference in everything that touches us as part of the organization. "

Sanjeev Singh
"At Birlasoft, my Naval career’s lessons in unity have found new ground. Witnessing firsthand the evolution of women’s roles from support to command both in military and corporate spheres has been transformative. I’ve shed unconscious biases and embraced DEI not just as policy but as a personal mission. Mentoring women colleagues to success has shown me that diverse leadership isn’t just fair—it’s formidable. As part of our DEI council, I’m committed to fostering an environment where every voice propels us forward"
Atul Dubey
"At Birlasoft, I feel very blessed to be part of DEI council and my past practices on DEI have stretched a next stage. I’ve had the privilege of advocating, witnessing the transformative impact of DEI initiatives. It’s not just a policy for me, but a personal quest deep from the heart. Diversity & Inclusion are deeply intertwined concepts, essentially complimenting each other but far from interchangeable. Diversity is about recognizing, embracing the valuable diverse assets with varied perspectives, experiences, and insights. Inclusion focuses on creating a culture where all individuals are valued & supported. This fosters a thriving atmosphere with a sense of equity and belongingness amongst all. It's an ongoing journey, real change happens when policies go from papers to people and I can see that is happening in the organisation. I am being a DEI leader, committed to nurturing the same environment in the organisation."
