Technology has been a thriving field, growing and innovating every day. But the same cannot be said when it comes to female representation. In the tech industry, women are underrepresented. Additionally, they frequently get passed over for promotions, are underpaid, and deal with sexism on a regular basis.

The study finds that out of the total pool of tech professionals across India, the share of women tech professionals is only 29%.

Although women have broken the traditional glass ceiling in the last few years and tried to make a mark, the research finds that merely 8% of women are in leadership roles in tech industries implying that there is still a long way to go. Moreover, women tech employees on average command 17% less salary compared to their male counterparts.
