New Delhi: Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) celebrated International Women's Day, with a commitment to gender diversity at workplace. The event was organised to recognize the contributions of women in the Renewable Energy sector and to inspire them to break barriers and achieve their potential.
The event was graced by Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai, Chairperson of Press Council of India and former Judge of Supreme Court of India, as the Chief Guest. IREDA’s Chairman & Managing Director (CMD) Pradip Kumar Das also addressed and expressed his gratitude towards the female employees for their contribution towards the organization's holistic growth.
Extending a warm welcome to Justice Desai, Das noted that this was the first occasion in the history of IREDA for all employees to celebrate International Women's Day. He emphasised the 35-year journey of IREDA, highlighting how in the last three years, the organisation has seen tremendous growth in most of the parameters along with best quality corporate governance standards.
IREDA CMD also emphasised the company's commitment to promoting a more inclusive workplace and encouraged female employees to take up leadership positions in the organisation. He underlined that around 70 percent of the IREDA's divisions and departments are led by female officers.
Speaking at the event, Justice Desai appreciated IREDA for promoting gender diversity and inclusivity in the workplace. She insisted that women who are at home taking care of their families are also successful and achievers. One successful woman can inspire ten other women to succeed. Men should encourage their wives, daughters, and other female family members to follow their aspirations, Justice Desai advised.
