Union Minister Anupriya Patel favoured establishing quotas for women to help them compete in mixed-gender environments and advance in leadership roles, while observing that companies and public offices with women at senior positions tend to do better.

She also said that the government is committed to 33 per cent reservation in Parliamentary and State assemblies for women through a Constitutional amendment.

“Research has shown that companies perform better during economic turbulence when they have women on their boards, and communities with women in public offices have greater investment in public goods,” the Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare said here at an Assocham event.
