We have multiple identities arising from our gender, religion, caste, language, differential ability, sexual orientation, etc. and discrimination can potentially be based on any of these. Reflecting international best practice, IIMB looks at diversity and inclusion in an integrated way cutting across these.
Reflecting this perspective, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee was formed in August 2019 with the following charter:
1. Disability Services (with the support of ODS)
2. NSR-Predoc Programme (with the support of Doctoral Programme office)
3. Oversight and facilitation including for compliance of social diversity
4. Counselling Services
To enable a strong grievance redressal mechanism for any individual (faculty, staff member or student) who feels that s/he has been discriminated against on any of the grounds listed in the first paragraph above, the Institute has constituted the following grievance redressal committee from among the D&I committee members:
- Prof. Anil Suraj, Chair, D&I Committee (Chair)
- Prof. Sushanta Mishra (Member)
- Ms. Komala Devi M. (Member)
The grievance redressal committee may co-opt other members as and when required. Particularly in the case of grievances received from students, the committee may co-opt a student member in consultation with the Dean (Prog) / Chair of the relevant Programme.
In discharging its duties, this committee may follow procedure in a manner that is respectful of individual dignity and privacy, and maintain confidentiality of information. The committee will submit its report(s) and recommendations to the Director, IIM Bangalore.
