India – Roopa Badrinath, HR veteran and ex-chief talent officer of Wunderman Thompson South Asia has officially launched Turmeric Consulting, a diversity, equity inclusion (DEI) consultancy with a vision of helping organisations create diverse and equitable spaces for people to thrive for who they are.

Prior to launching Turmeric Consulting, Badrinath served as the chief talent officer at Wunderman Thompson South Asia and is an award-winning professional with over 25 years of experience in the realm of DEI, HR, as well as training & development.

Furthermore, Badrinath is a DEI practitioner and certified diversity auditor. She is also a Google-certified gold tier facilitator, having trained more than 350 women worldwide in self-advocacy skills. She is passionate about leveraging her vast experience in people strategy and employee experience to enable behaviour and mindset shifts through systemic interventions.  

Commenting on the launch of her new venture, Roopa Badrinath, founder of Turmeric Consulting, said, “DEI is about being intentional and intersectional. It is about deliberately providing opportunities for all, creating level playing fields and ensuring that all voices are heard, so that people can realise their full potential by knowing that they matter, and their opinions and perspectives make a difference.”

“Organisations are on the lookout for a partner who can conceptualise and contextualise scalable DEI strategies, curated to match their requirements. With Turmeric Consulting, my goal is to partner with organisations in their DEI journey, to help change mindsets and attitudes, so eventually an equitable future gains momentum.”

“ I chose to launch Turmeric Consulting in the Independence Day month as freedom for me is embracing diversity and differences and fostering change to free us from the shackles of prejudice, biases, and judgement. While it requires consistent effort and commitment, I deeply believe in the intentionality of organisations to spark meaningful change and be a force for good. I see Turmeric Consulting as an enabler to help organisations translate their intent into action,” she added.
