The Journey So Far:
I work as a Director, Global HR at Intelligroup. I'm a Management Graduate from Andhra University and have 14+ yrs of experience. Prior to Intelligroup, I have worked with Bank of America where I was responsible for the leadership hiring of its Indian organizations. I have been associated with companies like Bank of America, Smithkline Beecham. I worked in the areas of Performance Management, Learning and Development and Talent Acquisition.

Most of the time, when we hire freshers in the organization, the ratio of diversity is equal and over the years this ratio kind of inclines towards male associates. The gap rises from 40-60 to 2-98 at the leadership level. This phenomenon is true across industry not just at my organization. We need to put forth policies which help women sustain their careers and make it to the top.
A Fine Balance:
Some days I just feel they pay me so much to just have fun/I have some much time in hand that the organization is paying me to have fun..and on other days any amount of pay cant justify the amount of work and the stress I go through.
On an average, life is good.
