Saarathee CRM was founded in 2018 by Richa Bansal and Arjun Vishwanathan with the objective of delivering positive business outcomes via employing and enabling Persons with Disabilities. Saarathee has trained and hired more than 350 people. More than 90% of its workforce is represented by people with disabilities.

Saarathee has travelled the path of inclusion since its inception-where it hired, trained and nurtured people with different disabilities in its business; and delivered business outcomes. Hence it has set a path for itself and other corporates to follow on their journey to drive inclusion.

The series aims to help people with disabilities find their own corporate journey without self-doubt and obstacles. By engaging in a comprehensive dialogue with corporate specialists, we intend to resolve queries and gaps that PwDs encounter in their career, making them corporate ready.

Igniting Abilities will be conducted on the first and third Saturdays of every month, covering a wide range of topics related to Corporate Opportunities for PwDs with an eminent panel of guest speakers and experts in respective fields.

With a strong presence on the disability inclusion platform and a representation of our own BPO practice, Saarathee has made significant strides since it was founded. They are now stepping up to a new horizon to revolutionise the future of work by bridging the gap of skills amongst people with disabilities.

Their vision and mission is to build intent and action across corporates & PwDs to drive equal opportunities for professionals with disabilities, thereby bridging the gap of inclusion by making them contributing members of society. And to transform persons with disabilities into professionals with disabilities by converging EdTech, hiring and change management such that corporations can truly unleash the potential of PwD.

The first session of the series on ‘How to Initiate a Conversation‘, attracted a Pan-Indian audience of job seekers with disability. Most attendees were in their Undergraduate program, and the types of disability included locomotor, visual and hearing. The audience was inquisitive with a ranging from the lack of disability cells in companies, absence of corporate initiative to include, or the inability to look beyond the disability and so on.

On the occasion of introducing this new endeavour Ms. Richa Bansal, Founder and Managing Director of Saarathee shares her thoughts, “We are elated to announce the new series of webinars that will be a valuable resource for professionals as well as freshers with disabilities in their corporate journey. We are now stepping up to a new horizon to revolutionize the future of work by bridging the gap of skills amongst people with disabilities.
