“The Indian workforce is undergoing a paradigm shift with women entering the centre stage in many professions. Embracing gender diversity no longer remains as a feminist notion, but is an essential itinerary for corporates as it helps drive efficiencies and effectiveness within teams, functions, and organisations. In India, engineering is a long cherished career aspiration for both sexes, where we have more women engineers. At 32%, the country has a much higher percentage of women engineering graduates. And yet, statistics indicate that almost 45% of women move out of core engineering roles after eight years and take up soft skill positions. While a post mortem is likely to open a Pandora’s Box, the way forward is more important. How can things change and what role can enterprises have in this transformation?,” says Niketh Sundar, Global Head – People Function, QuEST Global in an article published by Human Capital Magazine.
