Papri Manna | Debashree Sinha [2]

Abstract: Present study aimed at finding out the relation between gender role identity and work-family and family-work conflicts of both male and female IT professionals of Kolkata during COVID-19 lockdown phase. Two random samples of 100 participants (50 males & 50 females) aged 30 to 40 years residing in Kolkata were selected. The Indian Gender Role Identity Scale (Basu, J. , 2010) and The Work–Family Conflict and Family–Work Conflict Scales (Netemeyer et al. , 1996) along with a general information schedule were administered on selected samples through online. Findings suggest that gender role identity, work-family conflict as well as family-work conflict, all the variables under study had found to be gender dependent for I. T. professionals living in Kolkata; & their gender role identity differentially contributed to work-family conflict & family-work conflict. Furthermore, there existed significant association between gender roles & WFC-FWC for those male & female I. T. professionals of Kolkata during lockdown for Covid-19 pandemic.
