Finding the Right Fit

Abstract

Jatin Kumar owns a growing IT company in India. He is considering interviewing and hiring an experienced project manager, Sheela Chavan, who is a woman. All the other employees in the company are male. When Kumar announces his pick, the male employees in the company all begin expressing concerns about involving a woman in an all-male environment. The staff is afraid that this would bring about several changes in the day-to-day business operations and the culture of the company. Kumar knows that as his business grows, he will need to involve women and individuals from other minority groups. But he is afraid that the woman may have trouble fitting in if there is no buy-in from his team members, to the point that he is deliberating about interviewing other male applicants to avoid dealing with grievances.
