Women in Leadership 2020

Women in Leadership: Creating a Vision for an Automated World

Sunday, March 8 marked International Women’s Day, celebrating the achievements of women and girls around the world.

Join us at Women in Leadership: Creating a Vision for an Automated World to celebrate International Women’s Day. Brought to you by GYBO Robotics Network, IEEE Women’s Network and hosted by Humber College North Campus. This event will bring together women in STEM from across the GTA. Irene Sterian will share her thoughts on the future of automation, AI, & robotics and their impact on the future of work in a connected world.

The connected world brings new technologies, expecting between 40-160 million women to transition their work in the future of automation. Considering existing challenges women face, millions stand to lose jobs due to, lack of technical skills training, decreased flexibility and mobility, and limited access to technology and expertise. Through collaboration between policy makers, employers and individuals, job losses can be reduced with commitments to affordable re-skilling, improved job mobility solutions, and increased access to technology.  

"Now that we are entering the automation era, the future of work for women will overlay new challenges on long-established ones”. McKinsey Global Institute. (2019) The future of women at work: Transitions in the age of automation
