We believe the most effective way to empower women is by enabling them to achieve financial independence. This is why over half of our employees are women, all of whom are paid fair wages on par with their male counterparts. Uma is committed to equal pay, in a country where
gender-based pay gaps are often dramatic, especially in the agriculture industry. We also offer our staff ongoing education programs, childcare, and generous pension plans, to ensure they have the monetary resources and practical understanding to plan for their financial futures. This theme permeates every part of our organization – even our reusable packaging is hand sewn and embroidered by female artisans in rural India.
