Gender Diversity and Inclusion in Tech
Dimple talks about women at the leadership level are very hard to find. We need to build an equal system that is a well-balanced mix. The tech industry acknowledges that there is a gender disparity, it’s a global issue. Dimple says that companies are aware they need to create a more inclusive workplace and are doing this through initiatives however the imbalance still exists. It’s not going to go away overnight.
