Diversity and Inclusion Summit
Recently, two global studies on women at work, one by the World Economic Forum and another by UN Women have revealed some disturbing facts. With the advent of new technology, women seem to be falling behind in work participation for technical roles. Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics and data analytics, were found to be heavily male dominated - as women’s participation in these areas accounted for less than 20 per cent of the workforce. To discuss and understand ways to break this barrier for corporate India, the Srini Raju Centre for IT and the Networked Economy (SRITNE) at Indian School of Business (ISB), hosted more than 60 professionals, men and women alike, representing corporate India for its first Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Summit today at the Hyderabad campus of ISB.
