Here you can find ways to improve gender equality at your startup


Gender discrimination exists in a work place in many ways, it could be either hiring a specific gender for certain work or different pay scales for a same role of work. According to the 2016 Monster salary index, Women in India are paid 25% less than Men. This clearly indicates that gender discrimination still exists in some of the work places. Here are some steps a corporation can do to eradicate gender discrimination :

1) No special privileges for a specific gender

Special privileges must not be provided to employees based on their gender. If a person is an employee of a company, he or she must perform their work without bringing their gender in between. There must be strict rules and guidelines that officials should follow.

4) Equal Compensation

Pay scale of an employee is a factor that must be regardless of gender. Equal salaries must be given to man & woman for the same work role. Both must be treated equally in terms of working opportunities in the company.

5) Active human resources department

When an employee feels discriminated, either they’ll go to their higher-ups or to the Human Resource department. It must be their top most priority to consider the problem of the victim and strict actions must be taken against the culprit at earliest.

    Some workplaces give a lot of advantage to women in the name of women empowerment but there should be a right way. We preach rightful equality.
