DIVERSITY PERSPECTIVES: The Challenge!

August 7, 2020

Praveen Gupta analyses a new study on gender diversity among Indian corporations: https://thejournal.cii.co.uk/blog/diversity-challenge/

“India remains well behind other markets that have targeted female representation of atleast 30 percent on boards”, says Ms. Hetal Dalal, COO, Institutional Investors Advisory Services (IIAS).

“Corporate India: Women on Boards” a report recently released by IIAS shows that at the Nifty 500 companies, women account for 17 percent of the board directors.

The report also recognises that while at the board level #gender#diversity is improving – it is still lagging behind at the leadership and middle management levels.

Needless to mention that much remains to be done to do away with the systemic barriers on the way up the hierarchy. In a largely paternalistic society, a female child needs to navigate through a lifetime of challenges. Breaking through a glass ceiling is never easy.
