Business outsourcing and IT services major Genpact Ltd and Ashoka University have partnered to create and launch the Genpact Centre for Women’s Leadership (GCWL). The first-of-its-kind industry-academia partnership is a Corporate Social Responsibility effort to drive gender-inclusive growth with a vision to create a balanced distribution of income, resources and decision making powers across sectors.

Speaking at the launch of the Centre, Tiger Tyagarajan, president and CEO, Genpact, said, “Through the GCWL, we aim to create an ecosystem of knowledge, resources and advocacy that will help create the next generation of women in leadership roles.” Dr Pramath Raj Sinha, founder and trustee, Ashoka University, said, “The GCWL is distinctive in that it is likely the first example globally of such an initiative being housed in a co-educational setting, recognising that impacting women's leadership is also about grooming gender-sensitive men as leaders.”

The centre will carry out research, establish thought leadership and conduct proactive advocacy to help create contemporary laws and policies that promote equality and women’s leadership. Moreover, the Centre will also conduct courses, training and mentorship programmes to develop and enhance leadership skills. It aims to create a knowledge bank which will help establish premium standards in leadership development and add to the next generation of women leaders from India.
