NotJustLex connected with a few women leaders to get different perspectives on gender-diversity in Indian law firms. We asked them for their views on:
1. Are women represented fairly at each level? 2. Do women advance as rapidly as men? 3. Do women choose not to advance at a certain point? 4. Are women hired at the same rate as men? 5. What lies ahead?
We hope that this will provide some food for thought. Mere sensitisation and policy change are not good enough, there has to be an effective execution and meaningful sensitisation.
Thank you very much for your time and effort:
