The opportunities and challenges of the tech revolution #WomenInWork
Everyone has a stake in ensuring women have equal opportunities in the world of work. The evidence is clear. Our Women in Work Index shows that improving female participation in work across the OECD could boost OECD GDP by US$6 trillion, while closing the gender pay gap could boost female earnings across the OECD by US$2 trillion.
The theme of this year’s report focuses on the opportunities and challenges that technology presents to women in the workplace. We explore how women have been able to take advantage of opportunities in the fast-growing tech sector. However, women are also becoming increasingly vulnerable to the disruptive impacts of technology and automation on their jobs.
