STATEMENT FROM THE AMNESTY INDIA BOARD MEMBERS

“Amnesty India reaffirms its commitment to zero tolerance for any form of discrimination, including with respect to caste, gender, religion, sexual orientation and disability.

We are committed to ensuring a discrimination-free and healthy work environment in which the dignity of each member of the team is non-negotiable. We have, in the last few years, proactively worked towards ensuring diversity in the team and will continue to do so.

As an organisation committed to human rights and professional ethics, we are open to learning and improving and reviewing our processes.

Every complaint and concern raised is taken seriously and strong follow-up to address each one, according to set procedures, is ensured. As part of due process there is also scope for appeal, which is a vital aspect, to ensure justice.

We ensure that our fighting of discrimination internally is not compromised at any level and we maintain the highest levels of rigor in our grievance redressal mechanisms.

We also recognise that adherence to the spirit — not just the letter — of a discrimination-free work environment, is fundamental to building an inclusive organisational culture. We will continue to invest our energies in fighting discrimination in every sphere of life.”
