Our commitment to diversity & inclusion:

A message from our Chief Sustainability, CSR and Communications 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 corporate office, from 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, 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 to create 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 proud of our progress and accomplishments, we realize that we must remain committed towards continuing on this journey and fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion at our company.

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.

Vedica Scholars

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.

  • testiminial_4“I have been in this company for less than a year and have realized that the focus on diversity and inclusion (D&I) is something that sets ReNew Power apart from its peers. ReeJoys is a great initiative and promotes collaboration and teamwork among employees across functions and locations. There are several D&I initiatives that allow everyone to speak up, share experiences and, celebrate together. All these initiatives have helped to create a happier and inclusive work environment. Today, D&I is one of the unspoken but ingrained values of every ReNewer and I’m happy to be a part of this.”

  • Vishwanath“I have been with ReNew Power for 4 years now and it has been an amazing journey so far. Being a part of the Execution Support team, I interact with all business verticals in the company including Wind, Solar, Offtake, Rooftop Solar, Finance & Legal, HR, CSR and Corporate Communications. My most memorable project so far has been the implementation of Ittigi 50 MW solar project. As part of this, I had to work closely with an interesting blend of employees – from senior leaders heading business functions right down to on site junior staff responsible for day to day tasks. This interaction with people from very different backgrounds has taught me a lot and widened my horizons. I am fortunate to have been enriched by inputs from a wide cross section of colleagues across levels – certainly the highlight of my journey thus far with ReNew. I am thankful to the management team and all my colleagues for creating a wonderful work environment at ReNew Power”.
