The study reveals the widespread industry gap between genders while highlighting the strengths of women in workplace. The report is based on insights from respondents that mainly include IT professionals from the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Haryana and West Bengal. The SCIKEY Research Report has been derived from the SCIKEY MindMatch Algorithm. This algorithm can map a professional’s mindset that is based on a set of questions that understand the individual’s habits and the ecosystem disturbances that cause distractions stress, emotional quotient, ego filters, aspirations and belief levels in a professional’s life. This data is further filtered to derive professional behavioural elements of any individual and is termed as “Mindset Map”.
The study highlights several aspects where women seem to have outraced men, such as the art of conflict management, negotiation and talent development; yet there exist certain areas where visibility of women is low. There are very few women thinkers and leaders in the world. As a woman grows, so does her array of responsibilities that often forces a woman to quit the industry, often, sooner than later.
