2. Pervasive guilt
3. Personal validation
4. Perpetual duality
Power discomfort While majority of respondents indicated they would like to have powerful roles, the data showed that comfort with power did not increase with an increase in experience. This clearly shows a need for leadership training, mentoring & coaching for women.
Determined to succeed Financially independent, highly educated, and part of a dual career couple, women want to wait until their 30s to have children. By the time these women become first-time mothers, they will have established careers and employers will have invested significant time and resources to develop this talent pool. These mothers do not want to opt out of their careers because their employers rely on outdated stereotypes and employment policies that penalize motherhood. Although employers have now devoted resources to support parental leave and flexible work policies, 70% of the respondents felt there was a lack of a support system for women to resume work after a break.
Ridden with guilt The elephant in the room is the ‘double-shift syndrome’ - Indian women oft finding themselves embedded in a web of expectations and traditions. Long commutes, lack of sleep, low physical fitness, and long list of household chores trigger low self-esteem in women. Counseling at both personal and professional fronts will retain women talent in organisations.
