Women in AI

According to a report by United Nations, India tops the world in producing female graduates in STEM but ranks 19th in employing them. While some unfair societal expectations keep female engineers from joining the workforce, another main reason for women dropping out of the workforce is their work environment not being considerate about their familial situations like sufficient paid maternity leaves, flexible work hours, good work-life balance, and just general compassion about their current work-from-home scenario where mothers have to balance childcare and work.
With a balanced ratio of female to male engineers and a higher female representation in our leadership team, we reached out to our engineers to ask them how they feel about being ‘Women in AI’ at Infrrd and what they would like to say to upcoming young women in STEM, and the response we received was overwhelmingly positive.
Here are some quotes from Infrrd's engineers across all our departments:
Our CEO Amit Jnagal and leaders across all departments understand how important it is to make our workplace equitable for all genders. Our Research Lab and Product Engineering departments are led by female engineers and most members of our leadership team are ambitious women who are great role models for their team. At Infrrd, we are striving hard to bridge the gender gap in employment opportunities, pay, and perks and we have our amazing leaders to thank for that.
