Whilst at Schneider, D&I was a top strategic priority for Tanuja and her senior executive team, and she personally reviewed progress against key goals monthly. She is also an advocate of the HeForShe UN initiative and Schneider is one of 10 companies– with 28,000 men globally who have signed this commitment. She also launched the PLUS ONE initiative encouraging hiring managers to add one more woman to their team. Tanuja regularly monitors female talent and proactively reviews their progress, as well as ensuring each of them is assigned a mentor and proposing women talent for promotions and key projects. Externally Tanuja is an active advocate for D&I and Women in Technology, and frequently speaks on industry panels, at schools, and in the media on the topic. When Tanuja joined Schneider, she founded PowerWomen a network of senior female leaders committed to developing the next generation of female talent and advancing women’s roles in leadership. This group meets quarterly to discuss the topic of D&I, how they encourage women into their industry, especially in commercial roles and at executive level. She has recently moved to Apax Partners, a global private equity firm, and continues to be a champion of diversity.
