Madhya Pradesh State council Anti-Sexual Harassment Council.

Director, POSHSHALA Private Limited and Founder, Divija Dave & Associates, I am a Practicing Company Secretary and MBA in the field of Finance having expertise in areas of Corporate Secretarial, Board Governance, Prevention of Sexual Harassment at Workplace (POSH), Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Ethics. I am a certified professional in the space of Compliance & Ethics, CSR and Women Directorship. I have successfully qualified the Online Proficiency Self-Assessment Test for Independent Director’s Databank conducted by Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA). Keen on bringing new aspects of POSH to organizations in the ‘New Normal’, I have started an initiative named ‘POSHSHALA – Learn to Create a Safe and Inclusive Workplace Environment’ in the year 2020. Till date, through POSHSHALA, I have been able to impact more than 2000 professionals compelling them to RETHINK their existing POSH programs and introduce best practices to move from POSH Compliance to POSH Governance. Currently I am serving as an External Member and POSH Consultant to many organizations including private companies, NGO and educational institutions wherein I am helping them implement POSH programs from scratch considering the post pandemic scenarios and providing sensitization to stakeholders at all the levels in the hierarchy. Having altogether a new perspective towards the understanding of POSH as a subject and its real-time implementation, I believe that I can help organizations to create a culture that promotes diversity, fearlessness and zero tolerance towards sexual harassment.
