In India, sustainability, inclusiveness, and equality are at the forefront of societal development. India is a diverse country with the world’s second biggest population.
It is a nation of variety, legacy, and distinctiveness, with dozens of languages, hundreds of diverse nationalities, and a plethora of lively cultures.
Unfortunately, variety does not always imply inclusion, and India stands at a fork in the road. Gender equality remains a key concern, with the World Economic Forum rating the country 140th out of 156 in its 2021 Global Gender Gap report.
If India wants to fuel economic progress, real transformation must occur, and underprivileged communities must be empowered.
Across the country, forward-thinking individuals, local organisations, and corporate behemoths like Accenture are breaking down barriers and enabling disadvantaged individuals and communities to drive active change in three critical areas: sustainability, inclusion, and equality. And digitization is accelerating that transition.

Here is a look at seven of these change makers who are using their projects to address various issues such as the environment, gender, health, education, child rights, agriculture, arts and culture, and animal rights, among others.
