On October 16-18, SAI and the Tata Council for Community Initiatives (TCCI) hosted a leadership training program in Mumbai for the Tata group of companies. The training program explored ideas of leadership commitment, shared values and practical capacity building tools to embed social responsibility throughout the Tata companies and supply chain.

SAI Advisory Board member and TCCI Vice President Anant G. Nadkarni kicked off the 3-day workshop with a call to participants to take a leadership role in advancing the Tata legacy of "living and sharing the human touch". The meeting was facilitated by SAI Lead Trainer, Badri Gulur; SAI India Project Director, Rishi Sher Singh; and SAI Senior Manager of Corporate Programs & Training, Jane Hwang. They led the group through training and exercises on SA8000, the UN Guiding Principles, the Social Fingerprint® approach to developing and implementing management systems, cross-functional Internal Social Performance Teams and change management techniques. 17 managers from 10 Tata companies participated in the program, including managers from Tata Motors, Tata Steel, Tata Capital, Voltas Limited, Tata Consulting Engineers Limited and Westside.
