For every Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos, we have an equally powerful woman changing the face of the technology industry. Yet, STEM is one of the major fields to witness gender inequality in the professional sphere. Globally, for every 100 men promoted to manager, only 72 women match up. This ratio is even lower in India. Today, more and more companies are taking steps to lessen this divide. Women conferences, forums, and events are a proven method to encourage women’s participation in tech and allow individuals to learn from leaders’ experiences.
