How much corporate India changed a year after 377, with Parmesh Shahani

One a year ago, on September 6th, a five judge bench of the Indian Supreme Court read down section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, making gay sex legal in the country. It was a big moment for the queer community. One newspapers called it ‘Independence day 2’ and another ‘Love at First Right’. But what has really changed in the past year? In this episode, Sandip talks to Parmesh Shahani, the head of Godrej India Culture Lab, about the kind of changes the corporate world has seen since then. They discuss the factors that decide whether a company is going to be inclusive or not, the work that needs to be done in this sector and the many ways companies can gain by hiring from the queer community.
