Celebrating International Women's Day - The Top Indian Women in Tech
From Ada Lovelace to Grace Hopper, women have been a driving force in the tech industry for centuries. Despite this, women still face a significant gender gap in the tech industry, with many struggling to break through the glass ceiling. However, there are countless women who have shattered this ceiling and made a name for themselves in the tech industry. As we celebrate International Women's Day, let's take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate the top Indian women in tech who have made a significant impact in the industry. These women are breaking barriers, creating innovative solutions, and paving the way for future generations of women in tech.

Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
She is the founder and chairperson of Biocon Limited, a leading biotechnology company in India. Under her leadership, Biocon has become a global player in the biopharmaceutical industry.

Debjani Ghosh
She is the President of NASSCOM, a trade association for the Indian IT and business process management industry. She is also the first woman to lead the organization since its inception in 1988.

Shradha Sharma
She is the founder and CEO of YourStory, a media platform that showcases inspiring startup stories and entrepreneurship journeys. She has been instrumental in promoting India's startup ecosystem and supporting women entrepreneurs.

Neha Narkhede
She is the co-founder and CTO of Confluent, a real-time data streaming platform. She was also the lead developer of Apache Kafka, an open-source distributed event streaming platform.

Falguni Nayar
She is the founder and CEO of Nykaa, an online beauty and wellness retailer. Under her leadership, Nykaa has become one of the most successful startups in India, with a valuation of over $1 billion.

These women are just a few examples of the incredible talent and innovation that exists in the Indian tech industry. However, despite the progress made by women in the industry, there is still a significant gender gap in tech. According to a report by Girls Who Code, women make up only 24% of the tech workforce in India.

This Women's Day, we can take a step towards closing this gender gap by supporting women in tech. If you know a woman who is interested in pursuing a career in tech, consider gifting her a tech course from UniKaksha. UniKaksha offers Full-Stack Development and Software Development courses to upskill individuals in the tech industry.

And for women participants, Unikaksha is offering a flat 10% discount on upfront payment and a flat INR 50,000 discount on the ISA payment model. This is a fantastic opportunity to help women realize their tech dreams and close the gender gap in tech.

So let's celebrate the achievements of the incredible women in tech this Women's Day and take action to support the next generation of women in the industry.
Happy Women’s Day!
