Khaitan & Co has a dedicated Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiative titled ARISE for both lawyers and shared services across locations. ARISE’s goal is to foster a positive and supportive environment in which all can flourish regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disabilities, religion, culture or any other dimension of diversity.
Our efforts under ARISE are both internal (awareness building) as well as external (creating opportunities for diverse firm members). Driven by our goal, we have activities aligned to different diversity streams: ensure gender balance across the Firm; build a supportive ecosystem irrespective of sexual orientation or identity; support colleagues affected by disability; and create right environment for mental wellbeing that is part of our broader approach to wellbeing at the firm.
Our Inclusion Verticals
At Khaitan & Co, diversity, equity and inclusion are at the core of who we are.
In line with the Firm’s vision of attracting and retaining top talent and creating a richly diverse community of professionals, we are committed to nurturing an inclusive, bias and barrier-free work environment. We strive to cultivate a sense of belonging where our members feel included, respected and psychologically safe to bring their authentic selves to work. We foster a strong culture where our members can flourish and progress based on their professional merit, accomplishments and contribution to the Firm, regardless of their gender, age, sexual orientation, disabilities or any other dimension of diversity.
We believe that this DEI commitment will not only enable us to nurture an inclusive and welcoming workplace for our members but also help bring in a diverse and talented set of professionals to provide best-in-class, innovative and commercially oriented solutions to our clients.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is at the centre of Khaitan & Co’s vision and strategy. Our vision is to build a diverse and inclusive environment, which accepts and embraces differences. Keeping our vision in mind, we have created a handbook on rights to person with disabilities and a compendium of the key laws applicable to the LGBTQIA+ community.
Khaitan & Co is proud to announce its collaboration with She Breaks the Law (SBTL). SBTL is a global community of women leaders and change makers (#lawbreakers) who are passionate about the power of transformation, innovation and collaboration in the legal industry. We are honoured to be associated with SBTL as part of our DEI initiative, ARISE.
We share SBTL’s vision of prioritising a supportive, respectful and inclusive culture that is essential for innovation. Through this collaboration, Khaitan & Co plans to promote dialogue among women leaders, celebrate women who have broken through glass ceilings and provide insights on leadership development, career-development strategies, peer networking and more.
