Recent reports and studies have been revealing that still the ratio of men and women continues to be low in this technology era also. If we observe that more women are attracting consumers and changing the business environment with buying decisions today. It makes a lot of sense for a business to have more women, who understand the customer psyche better.

But below things may stop women from choosing a tech career:

Gender influence: Gender difference is the most important reason. Indian society encourages boys to learn problem solving with lego, puzzles, strategy games, girls are given kitchen sets and Barbie doll. A successful leader should have the courage to ask for what you deserve but here it will be missing in girls.

Working conditions: Heavy stressful work conditions and long w working hours may discourage women to enter IT filed. Times are changing and many companies are providing flexible work options like work from home to encourage women to play active role in their jobs. But women are leaving their jobs in middle due to family responsibility, kids and health reasons.

Pay gap: Recent salary trend report revealed that there is a considerable gap between male and females pay structure. Even many companies also stated that they don't have women leaders in their companies and need of enough women in tech and leadership roles. There is a need of hire and mentor the women executives to ensure they are building an ecosystem that is conducive for women to thrive.
