Hi,

As per the Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act 2013, it is mandatory for the President of the IC, to be a woman.

As many statistics has shown, having a diverse workforce helps in better productivity and creativity. Even if you have a few women only, it is necessary to select the most senior and suitable person to Head the IC.

In the future, you may need to also decide to hire a higher proportion of women to ensure there is some parity at the Workplace. Also train the existing ones to take on this role, as well be a part of the IC, as a member. Since the members can be on the board only for a term of 3years, its important to plan ahead on how the pipeline would look like.

regards,
