Capitol Hill Briefing: Women, Automation, and the Future of Work

June 11, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR), together with JPMorgan Chase & Co., are hosting a briefing on Capitol Hill to present findings from IWPR’s comprehensive new report, Women, Automation, and the Future of Work. The report presents the first comprehensive gender analysis of the potential impact of technological change on women and men’s employment in the United States, with an emphasis on the likely effects for women, given the jobs where women predominantly work and the disproportionate share of home and family care done by women.

The briefing will include a presentation of key findings on the risk of automation for women and men, including by race and ethnicity, followed by a panel discussion exploring gender-aware policies that can build a future of work that reduces inequalities, improves economic security, and ensures that women and communities of color reap the many benefits of technological change.
