  • Synchrony Celebrates Diversity and Inclusion at the Global Diversity Experience India 2024

    Published on May 17, 2024

     Hyderabad : Synchrony, a leading consumer financial services company, concluded its annual India Global Diversity Experience at District 150, Hyderabad, India. More than 150 employees across Synchrony’s Regional Engagement Hubs in India gathered together for a day of collaboration and interaction.

    The Global Diversity Experience 2024 aimed to create lasting connections and provide a platform for employees to engage in meaningful conversations with colleagues and leaders from Synchrony’s eight Diversity Networks, Health360, and Citizenship teams. The event included networking opportunities, a community service initiative, and panel discussions with Synchrony leaders.

    Notably, Major Vandana Sharma, an ex-army officer, entrepreneur, and senior HR (Human Resources) professional, delivered a keynote address that offered valuable insights to all attendees.

    In partnership with the Youngistaan Foundation, Synchrony employees participated in a community service event, helping to pack 190 education kits. This cause aims to actively support the development of school-going children and adolescents residing in urban slums, many of whom lack proper school supplies. The kits included essential items such as school bags, water bottles, stationery boxes, snack boxes, notebooks, nutrition bars, and other materials that help positively impact their well-being.

    This year’s theme, United in Purpose – Changing Tomorrow, Today, reinforced the company’s collective resolve to bring together diverse voices, mindsets, and people to deliver the strongest outcomes.

    “The India Global Diversity Experience is a dedicated event where we celebrate the richness of our diverse workforce,” said Gaurav Sehgal, Senior Vice President, Human Resources – Asia, Synchrony. “Through the India Global Diversity Experience, we empower our teams to work in partnership on impactful actions that benefit both the organization and the communities we serve. By bringing together employees from across our employee networks, we create a platform for open exchange and understanding, allowing everyone to learn from each other’s perspectives. The interactions helped build a strong foundation for an organic network of champions for equity, diversity, inclusion, and citizenship who continue to collaborate throughout the year.”

    Synchrony’s dedication to diversity and inclusion extends beyond this annual event. The company strives to continuously create and enhance a culture of belonging year-round through its Diversity Networks, employee resource groups that provide support, professional development, and an environment of community for Synchrony’s diverse workforce.

    Synchrony celebrates 51% female representation, over 106 employees with disabilities, and over 50 veterans and family members. With diverse and sustainable business practices, Synchrony ensures that the company leverages the power of its people to achieve its goals and create a positive impact on society.
