Wednesday November 13, 10:30 am-12:00 pm
Location: Atherton

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 panel will explore how companies are addressing the shifting work scenarios and disruptive technologies to ensure their female workforce is being adequately supported, afforded equal opportunities to advance, and are actively involved in creating the technology tools and solutions being deployed. Hear from a select group of corporate decision-makers working to minimize the risks to women’s employment and maximize the opportunity for women to succeed.
