Parexel India's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) initiatives
Our India DE&I committee has the mission to create a ‘borderless and country-less’ culture where diverse experiences and perspectives of every employee regardless of location, position or hierarchy are valued. The goals of the committee focus on gender partnership, supporting differently-abled candidates and employees, and encouraging geographical, religious, language, and sexual identity (LGBTQ+) inclusiveness.
Two main initiatives are:
Wisdom Circle (Women Inspiring Success and Developing Others to Management):
Wisdom Circles are a nine-month women’s leadership development and mentoring opportunity for Managers through Associate Directors. Assigned to small groups, Wisdom Circle members are challenged to expand their expertise across a variety of topics relevant for professional growth and development.
This is a program designed to expand inclusive leadership strategies, sharpen awareness of inequalities, unconscious bias, and privilege. Attendees are encouraged to explore gender stereotypes, mutual benefits of equality, and strategies for effective partnership across genders. Participants will engage with a cross-functional network to strengthen leadership effectiveness.
Parexel India's Corporate Social Responsibility
Through various CSR projects, Parexel is committed to improving health, education, and livelihood. We work in tandem with various charitable organizations around the world to help people live happier, healthy lives. Here are some recent projects.
Parexel supports Project Disha, a program in India designed to empower women artisans. Project Disha is a program developed by Chhoti Si Asha, a non-profit organization in India that works toward generating sustainable livelihoods for women. Through the program, more than 100 Indian women are provided upskill training (including technical training and life skills) to elevate their skills and traditional craft knowledge, empowering them to make beautiful products that could potentially enhance their livelihoods, while enabling them to stay home and support their families.
Covid Vaccine Transportation Van
Parexel is proud to support the Karanataka State Vaccination drive through our CSR initiative by donating Vaccination Transportation Vans. The vans are aimed at helping provide the necessary last mile in transporting vaccines safely throughout communities in India. The existing cold chain network in India is overwhelmingly reliant on large, refrigerated trucks for delivery at the tertiary level and passive ice boxes for delivery at the primary healthcare level. This demands an efficient, affordable, and portable solution that can actively manage cooling for last-mile delivery to minimize waste.
Primary Healthcare Centers (PHC) Upgradation
Parexel is supporting two PHCs in Bangalore and one in Hyderabad. The current public health system lacks basic infrastructure facilities and has been overburdened with the onset of COVID-19. The PHCs provide integrated curative and preventive health care to the rural population. To address the need of upgrading the PHC and its sub-centers, this project aims to equip PHCs and their attached sub-centers in rural geographies.
