DBS Bank India launches internship to support women re-entering the workplace

DBS Bank India has announced a six-month internship program aimed at women and others who are transitioning back into the workspace, including new mothers. The initiative is aimed at fostering an inclusive workplace.

Shortlisted returnees will engage in projects, and receive guidance from seasoned industry leaders within a supportive environment, aimed at enabling a smoother transition back to work. The program involves valuable hands-on experience in a workplace.

Individuals who re-enter the workplace after a career break may find it difficult to get back to the demands of corporate life, particularly given the pace at which technology and the workplace are evolving. In addition to this, women particularly, could also face challenges with unconscious bias or balancing work-life demands. 

Kishore Poduri, Managing Director, and Country Head - HR, DBS Bank India, said, “We have introduced this six-month internship for women returning to work in a very intentional way so that we can build a pipeline of skilled talent, while helping employees grow their careers in the long-term.”
