As organisations race towards scaling the diversity and inclusion matrix, we often come across the discourse on women leaders. But guess what, having women in a number of executive positions is easier said than done. However, now as companies realise the significance of women in management roles, there seems to be an increase in the share of women leaders.
According to industry leaders, as organisations continue to evolve in a constant state of flux, women leaders bring in skills and perspectives that result in notable structural and cultural transformations. Moreover, they believe that women in management teams have a very positive influence on the social motivation and achievement of the organisation.
Share of women leaders
Speaking about the share of women leaders, Chetan Yadav, Chief People Officer, Tally Solutions, said, “Currently, Tally has 31 per cent women in the leadership team, managing key functions in the organisation.”
Yadav further said, “We have learnt from real time experiences that women leaders possess skills like resilience, attention to detail, measured thinking, people development etc, which are critical when it comes to participative decision making.”
While emphasizing that leadership has never been dependent on gender, Tanima Dhawan, HR Director, Zoo Media, said, “Women leaders are pivotal to the success of Zoo Media, contributing to 40 per cent of the core leadership. A strong women leadership team leads with empathy and ensures stability and growth.”
