We are pleased to announce that, for the fifth consecutive year, Molecular Connections has been ranked among the 100 best companies in India for Women to work by the “2022 Avtar & Seramount Best Companies for Women in India” (BCWI) study. The study over its past six editions has established itself as corporate India’s most comprehensive gender analytics exercise and Molecular Connections’ is excited to be coming on top yet again.
The 2022 edition of the BCWI study saw several prestigious organizations participate from across industries, with the final rankings based upon a rigorous evaluation of their workplace policies and practices, women in leadership roles and women leading the change within the organization.
Commenting on the occasion, Dr. Saundarya Rajesh, Founder-President, Avtar Group “The results of the 7th edition of the Best Companies for Women in India (BCWI), the largest and the most comprehensive diversity analytics exercise in the country, conducted by Avtar in association with Seramount (Formerly Working Mother Media), are a glowing testimony to the relentless efforts of organizations in India towards including diversity talent. There has been an approximate 10% rise in women’s workforce participation from the time of the study’s inception, which today stands at a promising 34.8%. There is a steady pace of DEI progress in the Best Companies with 77% of them reporting an upsurge in their DEI momentum post covid. These are the companies that have reaped the fruit of rising the bar in their DEI efforts by way of increased operating profits. When the DEI best practices of these role model organizations go beyond their internal cultures to the ecosystem of vendors, partners, customers, and community we will create a society where our future generations can thrive and succeed.”
Subha V. Barry, President, Seramount, part of EAB “The 2022 BCWI-MICI results illustrate a clear path to progress. The 100 Best Companies continue to lean in on career advancement for women in forms of sponsorship, mentorship, and returnship programs, as well as benefits that support their working mothers. The Most Inclusive Companies Index places emphasis on identifying and developing diverse talent, utilizing best practices in DEI trainings, holding managers accountable for their DEI results, and more. It is through measures like these that ensure inclusive workplaces are built. We at Seramount are proud to honor these forward-thinking organizations.”
