Webinar Recording: India Webinar: Advancing Women in Tech-Intensive Industries

Technology-intensive fields, such as high tech, oil and gas, and energy, have grown rapidly in the 21st century, far outstripping other industries.

It’s no secret that women in tech roles in STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and math—face significant challenges. Catalyst’s research on High Potentials Under High Pressure in India’s Technology Sector shows that women lag men in this industry due to a lack of developmental opportunities. More recently, Catalyst’s groundbreaking global report, High Potentials in Tech-Intensive Industries: The Gender Divide in Business Roles, shows that those on the business side are impacted by inequity, too, and reveals a culture that is particularly unwelcoming to women in these fields, regardless of their roles.

This webinar explored how tech-intensive companies can attract and retain high-potential women from day one—and hold onto them over time. It was designed for those in HR and diversity and inclusion roles, as well as leaders with a particular interest in STEM/technology sector organizations who are interested in capitalizing on women’s underused talents.
