Inspiration is where the dialogue between arts and business often begins. A gradually increasing number of corporations have begun to understand how essential inspiration is to creative development and to recognise that the arts are uniquely placed to help them to tap into it. After all, the key currency of the arts is inspiration, inspiration of thought, emotion and action.

The arts sector has other, equally important, lessons to share with business. As companies become increasingly reliant on their people to give them a competitive edge, they need them to be increasingly committed, motivated and resourceful. These attributes are all becoming more and more difficult to foster in the present job climate. However, they are attributes that the arts sector enjoys in abundance and consequently they provide another area of expertise that they can share with the corporate world.

Through our program Creative Connections, we engage with corporations to work with diverse audiences using the Arts. One of our key focus areas is to build lifelong partnerships with compassionate individuals by introducing corporate citizens to the goals of a socially inclusive society. Our trainings and workshops are designed keeping in mind themes of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for corporates. 

Dr Gitanjali G Govindrajan, Founder and Executive Director of Snehadhara Foundation was at the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI), as part of our Creative Connections programme, for a training on ‘Promoting Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace’. CDRI is a multi-stakeholder global partnership and its total membership count stands at 39 national governments and 7 organizations. The training was organised by Miyamoto International with CDRI. Today, 60 persons from the CDRI staff, USAID, and Miyamoto Project staff were present for this discussion and training. The essence of the training focused on much needed Diversity, Inclusion and Equity.


Snehadhara Foundation has been invited to USAID at the US Embassy to conduct workshops and trainings on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, with a focus on workplace cultural sensitivity. 

The session modules have a focus on Combatting Insensitivity and Discrimination, and work towards reducing microaggresions in the workplace.
