Mr. Wincy Abraham
The concept of diversity management has been in news since the past two decades. Owing to the increasing workforce diversity which is mainly the result of the management's acknowledgement of the fact that diverse workforce results in innovative ideas and higher overall organisational efficiency, more and more organisations are seriously considering the diversity management techniques to maintain harmony among the workers. On comparing workforce in the present with that of the past, we see a considerable demographic shift in terms of nationalities, ethnic background, socio-economic status etc. Although the management off-late has recognized the importance of diversity management, it has not been easy for them to implement. This paper focuses on the issue of managing gender diversity in IT organizations in India.
