Statistics can be depressing. Take these, for example: only 30% of India’s tech force is made up of women, with a meager 36% of this pool promoted to supervisory positions.
Statistics can also be uplifting. There are predictions that the country’s current male to female ratio in tech companies — 76 to 24 — will become 65 to 33 in the next year. In fact, India is still better off than other, more “progressive” countries like the United States, where only 21% of the tech workforce is made up of female employees.
