Pride in diversity
"When you reduce life to black and white, you never see rainbows."
This is pride month and we set out to investigate if businesses are truly gender-inclusive? We took a sample of job descriptions from deep-tech businesses as they are expected to be a bit more progressive. Turns out that new-age tech businesses are doing well on the gender index. They largely use gender-neutral language while hiring.
But, we still have ways to go. Companies still use 'he' quite a bit while describing job responsibilities. It's discriminatory not just to LGBTQIA candidates, it's discriminatory to women as well! If new-age businesses are not fully there yet, what can we expect from more traditional businesses? Time for HR professionals to wake up and smell the change!
Equal is equal! Equal is beautiful!
