Our commitment to diversity & inclusion:

A message from our Chair, ReNew Foundation and Chief Sustainability and CSR Officer

At ReNew Power, we embrace and celebrate our differences by welcoming people from diverse backgrounds and promoting an inclusive work environment. Our workforce includes people from different cultures, regions, nationalities,  gender and age groups.

From local talent in regional offices to global experts in our corporate office, from a young enthusiastic Gen Y to seasoned professionals – our diverse workforce has helped us create an environment of innovation and creativity. They have helped us remain ahead of the curve by being curious, exploring various perspectives, asking non-conformist questions and suggesting unique solutions.

We have launched several programs focused on valuing and utilizing the diversity of each employee, and to create an inclusive work culture in which people can perform at optimum capacity.

For example, Recruit Her is focused on hiring women at middle & senior management positions, while Power of W is a platform for women employees from diverse backgrounds to share their experiences and support each other. Similarly, Global Green Scholars Program provides opportunity to international students to work in India and learn more about the renewable industry here. Our engagement initiatives are focused on creating opportunities for employees from different regions and nationalities to interact and learn from each other. We also organize regular policy-awareness sessions for all employees. Other programs like Vedica Scholars and ReWIN are also aligned to our overall objective of creating value by bringing together a diverse group of people, and making them work as one team.

While we are happy with the progress made so far, we realize that we must remain committed towards continuing on this journey and fostering a robust culture of diversity and inclusion at our company.

Global Green Scholars Program

This program was launched in 2017 to attract bright and passionate talent from top universities across US, with a keen interest in renewable energy and sustainability. Aimed at promoting diversity and exchange of ideas, the program is designed for students with stellar academic and co-curricular record. We recruit both graduate and undergraduate students from top universities like Harvard University, Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Wellesley College, University of Maryland and University of Michigan. The scholars undergo an 8-10 weeks summer internship program working on a live business project. They get to experience a slice of how business is conducted on the ground in India while ReNewers also get to know their perspectives, so this is a mutually beneficial exercise.

Vedica Scholars

ReNew has been associated with Vedica Scholars Program since 2016. Every year, a woman scholar joins us for a 1-month ‘Shadow a Woman CEO’ program, wherein they work closely with our Chief Sustainability, CSR and Communications Officer, Vaishali Nigam Sinha. The scholar gets an opportunity to participate in strategic meetings, work on projects and observe the leader’s daily schedule. The program provides the scholars an opportunity to broaden their perspective, build social capital, learn to navigate through the organisation more strategically, and muster up the confidence to ‘lean in’ and speak up when it matters most.
