New Delhi, India – Oct. 8, 2020 - Global professional services firm ZS is proud to announce that it has been recognized among the top 100 companies for women by the Working Mother and Avtar Best Companies for Women in India (BCWI). This recognition has come to ZS for the third consecutive year.


Along with being recognized in this category, ZS also bagged the prestigious ‘Exemplar of Inclusion’ award in the second edition of Working Mother & Avtar Most Inclusive Companies Index (MICI), for the first time ever.


The AVTAR Group chose its “Top 100 Best Companies for Women in India” based on the best practices, programs and policies organizations have in place to support gender inclusion, and ZS was evaluated against 321 companies across industry verticals.


ZS’s Asia regional managing principal Sanjay Joshi said “at ZS, our people and culture are of most importance. The recognitions have come in at a time when the firm is expanding, and these accolades confirm the impact that we are creating on our people”.


“This is a great testament of all the efforts and impact we have had toward attracting, retaining and growing a gender diverse workforce at ZS. I am personally super proud as well as humbled at this industry-wide recognition. While there is still a long way toward our north star vision of 50:50 gender representation, milestones like these should be celebrated with a commitment and zeal to continue marching forward in this direction. Thank you to each one within ZS who is enabling this each day with active support”, said Apoorva Aggarwal, ZS India’s first woman principal and India’s Women Leadership Initiative lead.
