Diversity at Mid-Senior Level
A perfect beginning
40% women every year join India Inc. at entry level.
A questionable gap
There are only 24% women in the middle management and 6% women in senior management.
“Opt-out revolution” or off-ramping– the emerging trend where well-qualiﬁed women choose to leave productive careers due to personal constraints. Mostly this happens at a crucial “mid-level” time of their careers and also when the loss of their talent is most costly to companies.
After the break
While many women choose to leave their careers for a short time – 93% of these women want to return to work. But only 40% are able to secure full-time jobs after their break.
When these professionals are ready to come back, opportunities are limited. They often get left out because of the changed scenarios and a gap in their resume.
When experienced women leave the workforce at a higher rate, the companies miss the chance to leverage women’s best skills. Also it is a huge waste of talent and investment in education and training of women if they are not pursuing careers.
Careers, companies and economies suffer when highly skilled women cannot get back where they belong.
But this trend is here to stay. Many professional women will leave their career at-least once. We need programs to have this highly credential talent pool back in our talent pipeline.
