Employment opportunities for Women in technology sector is very limited in our country. A recent McKinsey study shows that the contribution of women to India’s GDP is 18%, one of the lowest proportions compared to rest of the world, reflecting the fact that only 25% of India’s labor force is female. These statistics tell us how low gender diversity is followed by organizations here.
Also there are less number of notable leading female faces in India’s tech, who can not only serve as inspiring role models but are also paving the way for future female leaders through their innovative work.
To solve this undeniably gender gap and keep a gender balance in the Indian tech sector, WiT provides Job opportunities through Career Fairs and online Job Boards that help connect Corporates looking for hiring talent and women who aspire to seek their careers in STEM.
We hope that the right engagement and enablement will lead to skilled and motivated women workforce willing to work in STEM thereby making a difference and positive impact to how technology shapes our future.
