Introducing SWE’s India Corporate Council

In 2019, SWE launched a new partnership initiative in India. The India Corporate Council (ICC) is the primary source for disseminating industry trends, sharing best practices and creating new intervention strategies specifically for the advancement of women in the Indian engineering and technology community. The Council is comprised of organizations with a strong engineering and technology presence in India with the goal of promoting diversity and inclusion in the field.

Introducing SWE’s India Corporate Council

Led by two co-chairs, Veena BM of Medtronic and Rachna Parashar of Honeywell, the ICC provides a forum for Indian executives to share successful strategies and contribute to the advancement of women in engineering and technology. The ICC held its first meeting in December 2019 in Pune, India, with leaders from 11 different organizations gathering to share best practices and begin shaping the future of the Council.Introducing SWE’s India Corporate Council

“Through the council we will support the development of a strong network of women engineers and help organizations in their journey to incorporate best practices so that they would be able to retain the women engineer talent in the science and technology stream.” – Veena BM, Center Leader & Engineering Director at Medtronic, Bengaluru

The ICC is influential in supporting the WE Local India conference through speaker recommendations and the sponsorship of a scholarship program that provides students and other deserving young women the opportunity to attend the event. The next ICC meeting will take place in Bengaluru on 1 April.
