More women in middle-management roles

“It is great to see organisations appreciating the value of diversity in their workforce. To achieve truly inclusive recruitment, significant re-prioritisation is still needed. A commitment to inclusion initiatives, supported and facilitated by a diversified recruitment culture, will enable organisations to develop a business model in which all talent can thrive,” said Anshuman Das, CEO and Co-Founder, Careernet.
