Abstract

Despite the substantial rise in the number of women joining the workforce, gender parity continues to suffer, especially at higher positions. In India, 85% of working women claim to have missed out on a promotion or hike because of their gender. About two-thirds of working women (63%) and working mothers (69%) say they faced discrimination at work due to familial and household responsibilities. It is the need of the hour for organizations to reimagine their diversity practices and offer greater flexibility to caregivers, to increase female participation in the workforce. Reduced and flexible schedules, more sabbaticals, and new opportunities to upskill and learn are critical offerings that can help organizations attract, hire, and retain more female talent. Gender bias is the tendency to prefer one gender over another. It is a form of unconscious bias, or implicit bias, which occurs when one individual unconsciously attributes certain attitudes and stereotypes to another person or group of people.
