Gender diversity is getting high on the agenda for India Inc. An increasing number of organisations are realising the impact of having a diverse and inclusive workplace. Having women across management levels not only makes better business sense...However...the reality is grim when we consider the number of women holding senior leadership positions in corporate India. An analysis of all listed companies on the NSE reveals that approximately 90% of them had a woman director on the board. However, women represented only about 12.3% all directorships. Further, only four companies in the BSE 100 have a woman CEO today.
