New Delhi, July 9 (IANS) India’s ranking in gender diversity has improved in 2018 with the financial sector hiring more women even as the country ranks fifth lowest in having women in such roles, a report said.
According to the newly released ‘Gender Diversity Survey Report 2018’ by Delhi-based consultancy and recruiting firm En-world, India is showing a considerable increase in the hiring of women but it is still low to match the global numbers.

The automobile industry remains to be heavily male-dominated with only 7 per cent of females in the Industry at the mid-senior level position.
Telecom has a female ratio of 11 per cent, while Information Technology Industry has last year recruited female candidates, representing 16 per cent of the fresh intake.
