About RISE

 

RISE (Reimagining Inclusion for Social Equity) is India’s premier LGBT+ Job Fair and Conference.

Over the last 3 years, RISE Job Fairs have enabled over 300 job offers in BFSI, IT/ITes, FMCG, Consulting, Manufacturing, Automobile, and other sectors.

RISE Conferences have brought together CXOs, CHROs, D&I, HR leaders, ERG Leaders, Executive Sponsors, LGBT+ & Ally changemakers from around the world, enabled ERGs to transform to BRGs, grown the tribe of champions of inclusion and accelerated collective progress. 

 

And this year, we commit to #OUTDO.

We are here to push forward and enable Better Opportunities and more Inclusive Workplaces for LGBT+ Talent. We are here to help workplaces transform into havens of inclusion and belonging, that attract, retain and nurture talent across the spectrum.

The RISE Revolution 

 

What started as an audacious goal in 2019 to reimagine a world of equity, has today transformed many lives and livelihoods. Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Hiring and Proactive Inclusion has transformed India Inc and the LGBT+ community, for no one should have to choose between career and identity.
