The good news on the gender front is that companies like Satyam Computer are actively seeking to recruit women at senior or leadership levels.
For a company that's "actively seeking to recruit women", it's really odd to find its HR Director, Mr. A. S. Murthy, holding -- and expressing -- some horribly stereotyped views about women. Just look at what he says about single women:
... [The] examples of many single women at the top is not a proud example I want to quote. Their anxiety, attitude, communication methods, etc, cause concern. Especially in divorced women, we commonly find problems and my experience is not positive. Some of these women are difficult to fit into teams; they can make both insensitive bosses as well as subordinates." ...
The last paragraph is revealing, too:
"[When] we look at the attrition figures, we're asking if we train women for 6-24 months, what is the use if they leave?" The average tenure of women is 2 years; with that of men being slightly higher, he adds.
Let's get this straight: the question "what is the use if they leave?" is asked only about women, but not about men, whose average tenure is "slightly higher". The man's bias is revealing, no? Is this bias shared by Satyam's top management?
