Educational & Diversity Initiatives

Those of us really invested in the future of our planet know that the way forward to help our environment and stop the mindless exploitation is to educate our children. Once the children are made aware of the devastation man’s greed has wrought on the planet, they will be motivated to do something about it and grow up to be eco-friendly adults, whose focus will be on sustainable living. This concern for our surroundings should extend to our fellow human beings too, particularly when they suffer from disabilities. The need to nurture and take care of others and the planet should be taught at an early age.

Wipro has been involved in this kind of educational initiatives for more than a decade. They have tied with more than thirty educational institutions, reaching out to more than 2000 schools across India and more than 700 colleges including engineering colleges, where they educate engineers and architects to think about coming up with ways and means to save our planet, our environment and our biosphere. Our initiatives do not stop with just the students; their influence will rub off on their parents and siblings too.

Such educational initiatives are geared towards the long term vision of sustainable green living. When these young children become adults they will automatically be more inclined towards sustainable living, green buildings and responsible socially. Wipro Applying Thought in Schools (WATIS) and MISSION 10 X are two programs instituted by Wipro to educate our children and cultivate the idea of being proactive adults who swing into action rather than just sitting around and talking about them.

WATIS focuses on educating the younger children in schools, firing up in them a passion to protect the planet and the fragile biosphere. MISSION 10 X focuses on engineering students, in order to motivate them to work towards evolving eco-friendly technologies. The diversity initiatives are geared to include the weaker sections of society, with regard to gender and the underprivileged, though the main thrust is towards the differently abled. 28% of the workforce are women, and though this is hardly more than one-fourth representation for half of society, it is significantly more than most other companies in India. People from 70 different countries make up 33% of the employee strength of Wipro, which is almost one-third of the workforce, making it a true multinational company.

Wipro aims to create a more humane and democratic society by also empowering the differently-abled. With almost 500 differently-abled people on their payroll, and with all the buildings across all the campuses providing easy access to all areas to them, Wipro is a pioneer in inclusive policy-making. Such diversity initiatives need to be followed by other employers without looking to the government for inclusive initiatives. Just imagine what we can do as a society, if each of us are ready to give a chance to the differently-abled to earn a decent living at a decent job.
