AZB, Luthra, NLS alum Aparna Mittal starts gender equality consultancy Samana

Aparna Mittal moves from law to policy consulting
Aparna Mittal moves from law to policy consulting

Aparna Mittal, who had left the partnership of AZB & Partners in September 2017, has started a consultancy focusing on gender, policy and law.

“After having spent more than 12 years as a Corporate/ M&A lawyer at India’s leading law firms, I quit law firm practice to explore opportunities that aim to bring about meaningful social change,” she said in a statement. “Samāna Centre is my endeavor to create empowerment for women and members of the third gender and help move closer towards the cherished Constitutional (and fundamental) Right to Equality.”

She would begin hiring staff shortly, she told us, having just launched the Centre’s website.

The centre would focus on three verticals in particular:

(a) Philanthropy & CSR : advising entities engaged in philanthropic / CSR activities on Gender Mainstreaming;

(b) Gender at the Workplace : advising entities on HR policies to promote inclusiveness and Gender Capacity Building; and

(c) Law and Policy : taking up strategic legal and policy interventions in this area.

Mittal had begun her career at Luthra & Luthra in 2005, after graduating from NLSIU Bangalore.
