This year’s 2021 BELA South Asia magazine features 26+ articles from a diverse set of company leaders across India. The articles in this publication highlight how leaders in the Business Ethics Leadership Alliance (BELA) South Asia are working towards identifying, measuring, and enacting meaningful progress. In the pages of this magazine, you will read inspirational stories of integrity-in-action chronicled by members of our community such as Accenture, Dell Technologies, Dr. Reddy’s, EY, GE, Infosys, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., Tata Steel, 3M, and much more.
Going back to the operating principles of the BELA South Asia Chapter, one of our goals was to continuously support our peers through curating content and resources to raise the bar on ethics and integrity across India—and we have stayed true to that four years later—even during a pandemic that has not spared anyone. A true test of leadership, we witnessed businesses that lacked established playbooks to deal with something of this magnitude, yet they responded at an uncommon level, with compassion for their employees, customers, and stakeholders, and with vigilance toward keeping their communities safe— and it is working. We are pleased to share these stories with you and hope you will take the time to read them.
