The recent horrific gang rape of the young woman in Delhi has become a watershed event for the world’s largest democracy. Unprecedented protesting in the capital city has put increasing pressure on lawmakers to crack down on enforcement and fast-track the court system. It will take too long and cost too many lives unless we come together as civic and corporate communities to unite and empower real change. We need your support.
You are known for your strong commitment to corporate social responsibility, civic duty, and governance. You have been recognized as “America’s Most Reputable Companies” by Forbes, 2012. In today’s global market your products and services have been deemed a global standard. Your deep commitment to your employees, customers, and the communities you serve differentiate you as best in class.

You have joint ventures, back office operations, manufacturing, IT services, retail, financial services, and customer service call centers in India.
I am writing to you because of your business presence in India. I am requesting that you condemn this atrocious act against this young woman so that safety for women in public spaces is addressed quickly and appropriately.
There are meaningful actions that can be taken. Thank you for everything you currently do to empower public safety. Here are a few thoughts:
1. Provide clear signage to identify buses, and other transport, used by your company.
2. Partner with stakeholders (employees, customers, communities), to offer resources such as self-defense classes, support groups.
3. Offer workplace diversity or cultural competence training.
These ideas empower public safety and general well-being.
This will further your brand promise as your employees, customers, and communities connect with your genuine concern for their well-being.
Yours is a powerful voice which will comfort millions of families throughout India who fear for the safety of their daughters, sisters, wives, and mothers. Your support will also empower lawmakers to keep their focus on this issue and ensure that effective safeguards are put in place.
Please consider what we can achieve if civic and corporate communities the world over worked hand in hand on this issue.
