IMF study says gender diversity is likely to be boost productivity growth

IMF
IMF study says gender diversity is likely to boost productivity growth including in countries like India. The Research Paper said the women bring new skills to the workplace. In the paper, IMF said the progress has been made in increasing female labour force participation in the past two decades 

The paper asserted that gender diversity is likely to be beneficial to productivity growth, including countries like India, because women bring new skills to the workplace. It said, reducing female underemployment should yield greater gains than an equivalent increase in male employment.

The report in a footnote said there are notable exceptions to this rule. China enjoys markedly equal employment in all sectors, and India, on the other hand, has high aggregate employment ratios that are extraordinarily high in the services sector.
