How Business Can Build a ‘Future of Work’ That Works for Women, A Framework for Action
To help women successfully transition and thrive as the very nature of work changes, companies need to design inclusive 'future of work' strategies that address both systemic challenges women at work face and the new challenges presented by new work structures and gaps in social protections.Creating a ‘future of work’ that works for women will require companies to:
- Act by adjusting policies and practices to be inclusive, free of bias, and responsive to the changing nature of work;
- Enable opportunities for women by collaborating with peers, government and educational institutes, and civil society;
- Influence by leveraging their government and public relations to drive attention to issues of gender equity.
