HR can create customized policies, set up internal complaints committees and undertake capacity-building of the committee members with the help of the toolbox, and empower employees with a sensitization toolkit. Learning and progress can be monitored through a testing and certification system. It has been prepared after extensive discussions and help of several women's rights and business lawyers in India.
