Bangalore: March 8, an ode to women; it was originally called the International Working Women’s Day. Today it is simply a day for men to express their love and for women to rejoice womanhood; Mother’s day and Valentine’s Day have been culminated into Women’s day.



The recent year has seen a boom in women employees in the IT industry. Though many studies show that working women suffer from the phenomenon called the Glass ceiling in multinational organizations, which is the obvious extension of the patriarchal society but women have not bowed down and accepted the injustice; they have resisted and fought the unspoken evils of our society and risen right to the very top.



According to a research done by CIS.org on top 6 IT companies in India; namely Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, Wipro, HCL Tech, Tech Mahindra and Mahindra Satyam; 4 women are currently seated on the board of directors, 4 in top non-executive positions and 6 are in senior management positions. Though it can be said that the numbers can be much higher, that does not deem these laudable achievements of these women unworthy of applause.



So with that in mind here are the 9 most powerful female faces in Indian Corporate IT.
