An exclusive and promising sector with lucrative career opportunities to flourish, the consulting industry has always been referred as a male-dominated industry. But lately, the women are catching up with a zeal to face the challenges thrown at them. Not submitting to the gender-specific prejudices within the industry, women are acquiring the professional mindsets to leverage the available resources with their skills to yield better outcomes. With higher levels of engagement and ambition demonstrated by the women in the field of consultancy, currently, the industry is witnessing an exponential rate of women entering the domain. They are strategically balancing their personal and professional lives to prove their worth as a 21st-century woman with new-age skills and determination. Often termed as the weaker-sex, the surging numbers of women professionals in the consultancy domain have proved that the power of brains is much more than physical power and when the determination is strong, sex is just a feature but not the identity of an individual.

Welcoming them as an equivalent asset like their male counterparts, the industry is gradually shifting towards a gender-neutral mode, which rather a highly appreciable initiative.
