In November 2019, Tata Starbucks announced that it had achieved 100% pay parity, a key milestone that demonstrated its commitment to gender equality.

The company has consistently provided its female partners with opportunities to grow through initiatives designed to motivate women to remain in the workforce and to increase their representation in the organisation. 

The company's push for gender parity extends to its leadership team as well — 33 percent of the company’s leadership constitutes women. Deepa Krishnan, Nabamita Banerjee and Smriti Sekhsaria reflect on their journey and the mission that drives them.
