This learning report addresses the need to think about gender inclusion when hiring staff in India.

The report talks about the concern in India about lost economic growth and development benefits due to low female labour force participation. The low rate seems to be explained in part by challenges in finding appropriate work: a large gender gap in the unemployment rate—particularly among educated, urban women — suggests women face additional challenges finding jobs as compared to men.

It also says that evidence has shown that gender diversity in the workplace can have positive effects on productivity and firm performance.
