Women in Tech in India / Women earn less, get fewer opportunities

India’s ‘High Potential’ women in technology sector aim high but earn less, and get fewer opportunities for career advancement, says a report by Catalyst India WRC – a corporate membership community.

Women in India’s technology sector begin their careers as equals with men, with similar aspirations to the highest levels including that of CEO. Despite the promising start, a gender gap soon results in women earning less and receiving fewer career opportunities. The issue has lead to fewer women in critical senior-level positions and a pay gap between women and men that expands over time.

While the overall global study shows that women MBAs start at lower positions and lower pay, $4600 less on average than their male counterparts, India Inc’s high-potential women and men in technology start out on an equal footing when it comes to job level and pay. However, 12 years into their careers, women lag behind men by approximately Rs 3.8 lakh or $6000 in terms of pay.
