Harnessing the Power of Digital to Close the Gender Gap with Accenture



DATE : November 22, 2018
TIME : 08:30 - 11:00



VENUE

Roberto's Restaurant and Lounge

Join AmCham Abu Dhabi's Women in Business Committee, in collaboration with Accenture, for an insightful discussion on harnessing the power of digital to close the gender gap. Panel will include Anu Sabapathy, Saudamini Dubey, Francesca Gori and other thought leaders in the digital and diversity space.

Leaders of businesses and organizations have the power to close the gender gap in career advancement and pay. Accenture believes that bold leadership and an empowering environment, which promotes and adopts digital fluency and technology advancements, can play a critical role in this journey.

Digital is playing an increasingly pivotal role in enabling women in the workplace and this has the effect of accelerating real social change – Accenture research suggests that by harnessing the power of digital technology, advanced economies will be able to close the gender gap in 25 rather than 50 years.

Flexible working (patterns, location, roles) coupled with the ability of digital technology to help entrepreneurial new businesses – mean that more and more women can both enter the workforce and manage their lives and careers more effectively. The impact of this can only be accumulative as digital transforms the way education is accessed and the way women see their employment prospects.

Why attend:

  • Hear from our panel of leaders in HR, inclusion, diversity and technology on how organizations are implementing digital to accelerate their inclusion and diversity agenda.
  • Discuss strategies for building an empowering environment where men and women are equal in pay and in access to opportunities to lead.
