#Womens Empowerment


The rise of automation and the flourishing of artificial intelligence, among many other new and profound disruptions, stand to transform labor markets around the world in a manner that holds significant implications for women in the workplace. It remains to be seen, however, whether the new dynamics of the “Future of Work” will help or hinder progress toward gender parity in the workplace. This webinar will explore how these fundamental shifts to workplaces presents both risks and opportunities for women globally and present recommendations on how companies can take action now to not only to help workers prepare and transition for this ‘future of work,’ but also enact strategies that create positive advances for women.

See our latest report, How Business Can Build a ‘Future of Work’ that Works for Women, published in partnership with Women Deliver, for more insights.
