As a civil society organisation with a mission towards bringing about positive social and environmental change, Dakshin Foundation takes its social responsibilities and legal obligations very seriously. In consultation with subject-specialists and leaders in the field of social change, we have put in place a number of internal policies covering aspects related to finance, personnel management and staff conduct. These policies ensure that Dakshin is not just a safe working space for its employees, but also that its staff adopt practices that are socially responsible, culturally sensitive and lawful in nature. All relevant internal policies are shared with Dakshin staff holding various positions and responsibilities.
Dakshin adopts a zero-tolerance policy on bullying, harassment and sexual exploitation and abuse.
The following policies at Dakshin ensure that any reports of such practices are systematically raised and registered, invested and acted upon. Some of the key policies in this regard are presented below as downloadable PDFs:
- Prevention of Sexual Harassment at the workplace
- Whistle-blowing on Unethical Practices
The CAW under the whistle-blower policy is Ms. Rosemary Vishwanath. Address: House No N -48, 9th B Main Sector XI Jeevan Bima Nagar, Bangalore, 560075
- Protection and safeguards for children
- Data Protection
