Lalitha Kumaramangalam, the chairperson of the National Commission for Women, has emphasized that 'inclusiveness pays', and added that the hiring of women has usually led to increased productivity and profits and it makes good business sense to invest in women.
Addressing a session on Inclusion and Gender: Building India, as part of CII's National Conference and Annual Session 2015, Kumaramangalam also felt that women need training and capacity building to be part of the financial inclusion process and there is an urgent need to focus on women working in the agriculture sector and the Non-timber Forest Product (NTFP) where 90 percent of the workforce constitutes women. Investments in the form of skills development and R and D of women friendly machineries and equipment would be critical.
