Gender parity continues to suffer at senior levels: Report

Friday, April 13, 2018

Despite substantial rise in the number of women joining workforce in India, gender parity continues to suffer, especially at senior positions, as 16 per cent of organisations have no women on board level, says a survey.

As per the survey, 16 per cent respondents reported having no women on the board and 47 per cent reported that there are no more than 5 per cent women in senior management roles.

The pan India survey of organisations was launched by Confederation of Indian Industry's (CII) Indian Women Network (IWN), in association with EY.

Some of the major challenges that hinder the progress of diversity and inclusion initiatives include, unconscious bias, ineffective implementation of policies, fewer women in leadership roles, lack of awareness about the benefits of gender diversity, the survey noted.
