Hey! Welcome to the year 1921. Oh no! Wait, it is 2021? Then why are we still discussing this topic?? In this past century, humans have evolved and progressed. The women have empowered their rights and are independent. But still, women all over the world are facing indifference at their workplace - GENDER PAY GAP!!
How often do you come across non-male genders in a leadership position in the design field? From a messed-up work/life balance to sexism, women have to face a lot of challenges. There is an ideology that the credibility of a married woman or a working mother is less, as she has to shift her focus from work and balance her family. That leads to discrimination in the gender diversity in design fields. No matter how well she can juggle between her job and family, it is still an ‘either-or’ situation rather than an ‘and’ situation.
Fact: The ratio of males to females in a leadership position is just 11%. SHOCKING right! The women are not just struggling to reach the top, but at a lower job profile, females are discriminated against and are deprived of big opportunities to showcase their full potential.
