The pay parity issue is very subtle and fragmented. It doesn't exist at entry levels any longer - but tends to widen as you go up the chain and hit that invisible ceiling.

Diversity and inclusion have always been important to me, particularly having worked in an industry with a skewed gender ratio for over 30 years, especially in field jobs.
Compared to the global gender ratio of about 12%, India's female ratio is much lower, and less than 2% of those women reach executive decision-making levels. Although there is an improvement in the ratio at entry levels, with more women engineers graduating and joining the workforce, the drop-out rates at mid-career levels are still astronomically high.
