About the Talk- Women’s Representation in India’s Corporate and Management Sector
Prof Samapti Guha
Indian Society and Industries are predominantly under the control of patriarchal system. This leads to occupational segregation in the field of management specifically as well as in the Labor market in general. Though the representation of women managers in the Indian Industries are increasing phenomenally, these managers are continuously facing the problem of Glass Ceiling.
This talk attempts to explore the impact of different factors such as organizational, social and Personal etc. on carrier growth of the women managers. We also tried to understand the importance of diversity in the management practices in this industries.
