TURNING DISRUPTION INTO OPPORTUNITY FOR WOMEN
Mercer’s third annual When Women Thrive session at the World Economic Forum explored how the convergence of new technologies and socioeconomic and demographic shifts are transforming labor markets and presenting both challenges and opportunities for businesses and the workforce. To drive innovation and growth, leaders are pursuing greater levels of diverse workforce participation — in which women play a critical part. The discussion between Mercer executives and leaders from Bank of America, Harvard Kennedy School, Unilever and SAP was rich with insights and actions for how organizations and leaders must respond in this environment of disruption. Our newest white paper includes insights from the session and outlines specific steps organizations should consider to minimize displacement and advance opportunities for women.
