Women in Technology: Changing Times
Information Technology industry has always attracted some of the best talent in our country. That said, Indian IT companies have a high ratio of women in technology. In a world where women executives are battling for better gender parity, it is heartening to see women in the Indian IT industry gaining ground.
In the last decade, the Indian IT industry has seen women employees scale cultural barriers and gender bias to break the glass ceiling for good. In the year 2018, the Indian IT work force comprised of thirty five percent women. Compared to other countries such as USA (20%) and UK (17%) this is no meager achievement.
The Importance of Work Culture
Education and culture have been great factors that encourage Indian women to pursue careers in information technology in the last decade. But experts say, that more than anything it is the changing work culture that has helped the IT industry attract and retain talented women technologists.
Varsha Varsani, VP Marketing @ Aarav Solutions says, “Women empowerment begins at home. When given the freedom to create a work-life balance, it is amazing to see how much a woman can achieve. At Aarav Solutions we encourage a work culture that offers women and everyone else too the flexibility they need to pursue rewarding careers. This has helped us maintain a healthy gender diversity.”
Founder & CEO Raj Darji has always believed in building a diverse team. He says, “To succeed in the modern world, businesses need to recognize the power and influence of women in the IT industry.”
