20th October, New Delhi: The Indian business association, CII – Northern Regional Committee on Affirmative Action in collaboration with Fiinovation, a CSR global consulting firm, conducted a webinar on ‘Promotion of Supply Chain Management, Affirmative Action & CSR’ on 17th October, 2016. The webinar aimed to highlight the importance of aligning the business operations with affirmative action, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and effective supply chain management (SCM) to promote inclusive growth among the marginalised sections of the society.
The webinar was mentored by Mr. Soumitro Chakraborty, CEO-Fiinovation who emphasied on the concepts of SCM, Affirmative Action and CSR to the audience and highlighted its importance in the country’s development agenda. The session further elaborated insights and urged the government and corporations to integrate affirmative action and CSR with supply chain management for creating opportunities for the socially backward communities by formulating policies and strategies.
The marginalized section are the most vulnerable to social adversities. If India aspires towards being a developed country and an economic superpower, it needs to address the social development challenges with a holistic approach.
Through the series of webinars, Fiinovation has emphasized the fact that various Affirmative Action policies have been drafted for the historically marginalised people. Even several companies and associations in India have formulated affirmative action policies, however there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. Experts suggest that effective supply chain management not only helps in enhancing the quality of products and services from the suppliers, but also bring about positive impact on the business and the community in which they operate.
The webinar concluded, highlighting a way forward, focusing the need to make policies easier for the private sector suppliers to transact and build relationship with stakeholders while encouraging corporations to streamline and invest in businesses for a conducive environment for promoting inclusive growth of the marginalized communities. Corporations should implement CSR initiatives in SME clusters for tapping the potential opportunities of the SMEs in the rural areas as well.
