Abstract: This paper attempts to examine women empowerment practices and the drivers of successful women empowerment initiatives in Indian infrastructure organizations, so as to aid readers in understanding how these initiatives and practices may be optimized for the benefit of better performance management and employee engagement. We have based this paper on a systematic review of literature which seeks to examine the modern thought process and evidence. Emphasis is drawn specifically on reviewing the HR practices of current employers to empower the women in the workforce. Our paper concludes that ensuring that an initiative is crafted to an organization’s and its employees’ needs makes for efficient empowerment initiatives that leave a sustainable impact on the performance, productivity and engagement levels of its beneficiaries and the organization as a whole.
