Chandra Ganjoo, Group CPO & Executive Director, Trivitron Healthcare writes about the need for more women to be in leadership roles in corporate and how companies can boost gender diversity among their ranks
Women leadership still remains a universal issue and a topic of debate although we are now more aware of the need to have women at leadership roles and also at the board level. Thankfully, India is one of the first developing countries to have enforced a quota– Legally we need to have at least one women director on the board of listed companies. Also, Female representation has increased to 13 per cent from 5 per cent in the NIFTY Companies. But clearly more needs to be done and every stakeholder has to take the ownership and more importantly the WOMEN herself has to come forward and take control!
