This public panel discussion will bring together experts for a cross-country comparison of the impact of the platform economy on women’s labour force participation and how “platformisation” of work affects women’s earning opportunities and empowerment.
- What role will the platform economy play in improving women’s participation in the workforce?
- Does platform work provide opportunities for women’s empowerment? What does empowerment mean and how can it be measured?
- What forms of platform work give women a more equitable playing field?
- How can policies effectively address structural and systemic barriers that hinder women from leveraging emerging opportunities in the platform economy?
