Many companies accepting LGBTs July 30, 2016 13:04

At every step in his life, be it education or career, Apekshit Khare had faced obstructions and a stigma. In a country where homosexuality is criminalized and where the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people) community faces discrimination and a lack of basic rights. "I was pleasantly surprised when I realised my same-sex partner would get the same benefits as a conventionally married couple," Apekshit Khare, 28, says in Godrej Group's video promoting inclusion."We often have members from the LGBT community writing to us, reacting to our open policy of recognising and celebrating diversity. Roles are given on merit. The company is also careful about the team to which the employee is assigned and ensures that their manager is sensitive to such matters," says Sumit Mitra, head, group HR and corporate services, Godrej."We don't ask for any personal information such as gender, marital status. An unconscious social bias tends to rise within organisations and hence, it becomes important for corporates to take up this matter on a priority basis," says Chaitrali Singh, director - HR, ZS India, a global sales and marketing consultancy. "Our HR team drives regular workshops to encourage discussions around the topic. For employees in people management roles, we conducts refresher workshops on how to manage people with respect," she adds."More than 98% of corporate houses don't have a specific policy in place to protect members of the LGBT community from discrimination. And also, while there is greater sensitivity and discussions around gender inclusion, protection of LGBT hasn't really become a priority for most corporate houses," says Sarika Bhattacharyya, founder & CEO, Biz Divas."In 2014, the Tatas launched a group-wide initiative on diversity and inclusion (D&I) that embraces 6 lakh people belonging to more than 100 nationalities. Titled 'Tata LEAD', this initiative encompasses core aspects of diversity: gender, race, ethnicity, special abilities, sexual orientation and age," says N S Rajan, member-group executive council and chief group HR officer, Tata Sons. "We have not felt the need to isolate and define specific policies and processes for the LGBT community because inclusion and non-discrimination is fundamental to our D&I approach.""The LGBT community is a key element of this coverage," says Roopa Wilson, diversity & inclusion leader, IBM India. "We have a sound system of engagement for the EAGLE community (business resource group for LGBT employees) with reverse mentoring, role model and other leadership development programmes." IBM's Equal Opportunity (EO) Policy supports all members of the community even as they get on board.By Premji

Hillary Clinton's campaign confirmed, yet another cyber attack July 30, 2016 11:56

US Democrats said that they had been targeted by yet another cyber attack, while Hillary Clinton's campaign confirmed that an analytics program it used was breached in an earlier intrusion. A hack on Democratic National Committee servers resulted in last week's embarrassing leak of emails that had revealed how party leaders sought to undermine Clinton's Democratic White House rival Bernie Sanders."Our campaign computer system has been under review by outside cyber security experts," campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement. "To date, they have found no evidence that our internal systems have been compromised." The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) said that it was the target of a "cyber security incident." "The investigation is ongoing. Based on the information we have to date, we've been advised by investigators that this is similar to other recent incidents, including the DNC breach," national press secretary Meredith Kelly said in a statement.The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was working to determine the "accuracy, nature and scope" of reports of cyber intrusions "involving multiple political entities." The FBI, "takes seriously any allegations of intrusions and we will continue to hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace," the agency said.WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange indicated that more Clinton campaign leaks were forthcoming. "We have more material related to the Hillary Clinton campaign," he told CNN. "Those are extremely interesting. We will see what will come of them in due course." "The DNC and the RNC have been Swiss cheese in terms of their security," he said. Assange defended the leak, saying it is "true information." "If we don't understand what our institution's doing, we have no hope to reform them whatsoever," he said. US Secretary of State John Kerry raised the DNC hack with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Laos. "Secretary Kerry has noted that we've been concerned about Russia's activity in this space for quite some time," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said. "I suspect that won't be the last time they have a conversation about this," he added.The Kremlin dismissed the allegations as absurd, but President Barack Obama has refused to rule out the possibility, that Russia is trying to sway the presidential election in favor of Republican Donald Trump.

Pathankot attacks, US hands over evidences to NIA July 30, 2016 11:13

The US has handed over evidence, comprising over 1,000 pages of chats and conversations between the handler Kashif Jaan and the four fidayeens who were eventually killed, to the NIA. The conversations, as in the case of the Lashkar bosses who had scripted the carnage in Mumbai in 2008 from a safe house in Karachi, made it clear that the terror strike on Pathankot was also micro-managed from Pakistan.The four fidayeen of JeM, identified as Nasir Hussain from Punjab, Abu Bakar from Gujranwala and Umar Farooq and Abdul Qayum from Sindh, were in regular touch with their handlers in Pakistan during the 80-hour attack.The documents include Kashif Jaan's conversations with other Pakistan-based JeM office-bearers apart from other exchanges over a period of time. NIA officials are analysing the documents.The proof shared by the US through MLAT (Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty) will strengthen India's case ahead of the home minister Rajnath Singh's visit to Islamabad next week for the SAARC interior ministers' and home ministers' conference. It can also help in India renewing its plea for the UNSC sanction on Masood Azar as a terrorist.The investigations reveal that apart from chats on WhatsApp and other platforms, Jaan was using a Facebook account connected to the same mobile number which the attackers called from Pathankot after abducting Punjab police SP Salwinder Singh. The terrorists had called another number in Pakistan connected to a Facebook account of 'Mulla Daadullah'. These accounts are operated by Jaan, were accessed before and around the time of the attack using IP addresses of telecom firms based in Pakistan (Telenor and Pakistan TeleCommunications Company Ltd, Islamabad).These Facebook pages also contains jihadi material and videos and comments condemning teh arrest of Jaish cadres in Pakistan. The terrorists had called to the numbers connected to Al-Rahmat Trust - JeM's financial arm - for which technical details were sought from the US.By Premji
