The industries most affected by artificial intelligence, digitization and robotics will disproportionately impact women. They are underrepresented in growth industries like IT, architecture and engineering and overrepresented in the sectors set to decline, like office and administration, finance and accounting positions. We need to ensure that women's learnability - the desire and ability to learn new skills to stay relevant for the long-term is encouraged and they are given the opportunity to explore additional career options.
"Employers need to invest in career conversations to develop and retain women and ensure they have the skills needed to take advantage in shifts in industries and jobs so they are not left behind." said
Career Conversations are critical in engaging women in a discussion to align career goals and motivations with the company's needs and to reaffirm strengths, development and career opportunities. Yet one in five women have never had an assessment of their skills. Right Management says it is time to shift the needle and for employers to get talking to help women explore development opportunities, take advantage of new roles and win in a Skills Revolution.
