The Hindu: Holy Grail of Gender Balance

More and more companies are waking up to the advantage of having a workforce that’s marked by equal participation of men and women. At first glance, the production floor at Syrma Technology in Chennai appears to be the preserve of women, but, on closer scrutiny, there are men, but they’re hugely outnumbered. At this electronics manufacturing services company, there are 1,780 workers; however, a whopping 1,403 are women. This provides quite a contrasting picture of the manufacturing sector, which is hugely male-dominated. While it’s certainly commendable to see women participating in a workforce in such a big way.
