Sunitha Lal is a Human Resources professional and organizational culture expert, based out of Bangalore. She has over 25 years of experience spanning diverse industries and geographies. Because of her keen interest in understanding human behavior, she views organizational dynamics through the lens of behavioral science, psychology, and anthropology.
She heads the people function at Ather Energy, where a large part of her role involves laying the foundation for people practices and curating the culture of the organization. She believes that culture has an impact far beyond the organization itself. Moreover, what strengthens this belief is her conviction that the values that are intrinsically woven into the system helps the person take it ahead into their own social spaces. Culture that is cultivated in one organization spreads its seeds into a larger talent ecosystem across organizations.
An avid Group Relations methodology practitioner, Sunitha has a keen interest in the space of the unconscious processes in individuals, groups, and systems. As we journey through life, what were the lessons learnt collectively as a species? How has our thinking evolved? What are the stories we tell ourselves? These are among the questions that keep her up at night.
With an interest in yoga and philosophy, Sunitha marvels at the connection between mind, body and soul, and the influence this equilibrium has in answering life’s larger questions.
