The IT sector in the city has grown faster than ever in the last few years, creating some excellent opportunities for lakhs of youth and helping them discover the world of startups and business to make their ideas come alive. But as much as the state has been seeing growth, the female gender has not made the cut, and only a few of them are on top and continue to grow. 


While the middle level and low-level stages of the IT sector have enough women, as the hierarchy ladders climb up, the density of women keeps on reducing with the higher levels, which is not a good sign for a gender-neutral IT environment. However, this issue of not many women at the top is a national issue as all IT sectors in big cities have been facing the same problem. 


Hyderabad Software Enterprises Association(HYSEA), the city's apex IT body, has started with women's forum leaders this year to do their best to increase the presence of women in the fast-growing IT. The forum's primary aim is to raise the current 4-5% of women present in the top-level to a good 20% and grow higher in the future. According to HYSEA, this can be possible through intense mentoring, networking sessions, and formulating policies that will help women come out on top and grow in the IT sector.


Kiranmai Pendyala, HR Head of India at Western Digital Corporation, has explained how fewer women make it to the top level but don't survive long because of their low aspirational quotient. Moreover, this quotient is heavily less because of cultural differences and gives men the edge. The fresher and starting level of IT has a lot of women. Still, by the time they climb up the ladder and reach mid-level, they are handed a responsibility post marriage which is unfair treatment in the patriarchal society that sees them drop out. 


The fall of women at the top level is because they have never been given just the profession's responsibility. Still, their personal life has a list of dependants that do not let them survive easily at the top.Cognizant's Global Head of Digital Operation, Sailaja Josyula, confirmed that they have opened up women's global leadership development initiative and plans to bring more than 1000 women to stand firm and grow along with the IT sector
