Aarti Shyamsunder has joined boutique professional services firm YSC Consulting as its global head of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
In her current role, Shyamsunder is responsible for creating and refining YSC's point of view on DEI to ensure that DEI is embedded in all leadership strategy consulting services the company provides.
Prior to YSC, Shyamsunder ran her own consulting practice - Psymantics Consulting, working with organisations on niche problems with a special focus on applying evidence-based recommendations to organisational talent management issues like leadership, behavioral assessment, HR excellence assessment as well as DEI.
In a career that has spanned global boundaries, Shyamsunder has worked largely in the areas of DEI, leadership assessment and development, and hiring solutions.
In addition to her current role at YSC, she is also the co-founder of Metamorphosis, a DEI consulting collaborative, a founder-advisor for Cymorg – a platform for virtual gamified leadership simulations and is the founder and president of “COSI” (the Community of Organizational Sciences in India).
Whether strategic consulting, DEI embedded leadership consulting, business excellence assessments, teaching graduate students, conducting research, running workshops or coaching leaders, Shyamsunder attempts to leverage a balanced perspective combining science and art, relevance and rigor.
