The Center is working with Ujjivan Financial Services, a leading MFI in India, to design and implement a workforce diversity strategy. Ujjivan recognizes the value of building a diverse workforce during a time of organizational and geographic expansion. This innovative and advanced approach to managing and cultivating its human resources has been fundamental to Ujjivan’s growth and success. In early 2009, Ujjivan was ranked number one in the microfinance industry as Best Place to Work by the Great Place to Work Institute India.
WWB is proud to announce that Ujjivan Financial Services is partnering with the Center for Microfinance Leadership to increase the gender diversity of its staff and management. Ujjivan Financial Services is a leading non-banking financial company serving the financial needs of the urban and semi-urban poor in India. In 2005, Ujjivan’s founder, Samit Ghosh, identified significant need for financial services in India’s rapidly growing urban areas, markets that traditionally have been underserved by India’s microfinance sector.
