Can digital technology be an equality machine?


Digital technology and artificial intelligence present important challenges to equality in the workplace and in society. As workplaces transition towards a digital future, we are already seeing that existing gender equality gaps are being reproduced in the digital realm. However, does this have to be the case?

In the first of our Future of Work podcast mini-series on artificial intelligence and the world of work – and to mark International Women’s Day – we ask whether digital technology can be harnessed to be a force for good, for positive change and more inclusion. We explore the important role digital technologies can play in creating a brighter and more inclusive future of work, and some of the surprising ways they are already being used in workplaces today.
