New Delhi September 2 , 2018 Eminent global Chief Information Officers (CIO’s) from various telecom and Information Technology (IT) companies took part in a discussion  “Digital leadership & Inclusive Culture”  organised  late last  evening in Delhj on Saturday  jointly by   FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO), the woman business wing of the women wing of apex business body Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and Dell EMC .

Leading women CIOs invited as the panellists for the session- included         Dr. Neena Pahuja, Director General at ERNET India, Department of Electronics & IT (DeitY), MC&IT,Govt. of India; Harmeen Mehta, Global CIO and Head of Digital – Airtel; Seema Gaur, Executive VP & Head- IT,   IFFCO Tokio GIC Ltd and Anupreet Lamba – VP- Digital Technology(USA) Bank of America.

“Digital technology and several recent  government policies are playing significant role in empowering women  in a big way. Technology is also helping women feel secure at work place as well on the street   ”  said Dr Neena Pahuja, Director General, National Research and Education Network (ERNET), speaking on the occasion

“Digital transformation is not really about technologies. Existing digital technologies are accessible to all companies. The key is using these technologies to find value at the new frontiers of business. Being digital means not being afraid to use emerging technologies to solve business problems. Being digital requires being innovative. Digitalisation has women to be more safe with help of various APPS and mobile. Airtel has created congeal atmosphere for women they can work from home also during difficult times. Airtel is also focussing on empowering women in rural India by extending its network  .  said Bharti Airtel’s Global CIO Harmeen Mehta,  While speaking on the occasion.

“Encouraging and empowering women in the workforce is something the country needs to take up on a war footing, most corporates now a days  do want more women in the workforce – because they are really dedicated and committed to completing work.,” said Seema Gaur, Executive VP & Head- IT,   IFFCO Tokio GIC Ltd

“ Owing to the immense responsibility they bear, women are more productive compared to their male counterparts. "Subconsciously, a working mother feels that because she has left her child at home, she should be doing a meaningful job to justify her being away from home,"  said Anupreet Lamba – VP- Digital Technology(USA) Bank of America

“Women make up a half of potential human capital available in any economy. The efficient use of this talent pool is a key driver of competitiveness. Digital is a fashionable word today in the context of the use of “newer” technologies In a world where over 95% of all jobs have a digital component, and where there is a large and growing shortage of talent and skills in the ICT sector, the need of the hour for organizations is a workforce that is skilled, creative and will present diverse outlooks. The key to growth is to get more women involved and take interest in ICT careers.” Said Ms Pinky Reddy, President , FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO) speaking on the occasion.

“We at FLO, believe that more diverse teams make better informed decisions, leading to less risk-taking and more successful outcomes for companies. Over time, therefore, a nation’s ICT competitiveness depends significantly on whether and how it educates and utilizes its female skills. We agree with the underlying thought process that has emerged today that engaging women in ICT is the right thing to do not only from the point of social justice, but also in terms of smart economics. Gender diversity in high value ICT jobs in both management and on companies’ boards is good for business performance.” Said Ms Reddy

Rajesh Janey, President and Managing Director, India Enterprise, Dell EMC was also    present at the event.
