International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The International Women's Day (IWD) has been observed since the early 1900's - a collective day of global celebration and a call to action for accelerating gender parity.




At Tata Steel, we have made a conscious effort to build an equitable environment and a diverse leadership team. We have always been a pioneering and enlightened employer. We recognise that our people give us the competitive edge. Across the globe, our teams have a healthy mix of not just gender and age, but also culture, ethnicity and a myriad of other such aspects. We actively work against stereotypical biases to encourage a culture of meritocracy. MOSAIC, our Diversity & Inclusion initiative established in 2015 for Indian operations, is a driver towards this goal. It defines the path the company has taken to build a people-oriented culture that both celebrates and encourages diversity and inclusion.
