The future is already here30 September 2021
What has been the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on women or migrant workers? Have we taken a step back on the progress made in recent years in terms of inclusion? What is the ILO doing about it? Can remote work help people with disabilities? Are algorithms more biased than humans?
“The future is already here. If we don’t tackle the already existing inequalities, they will only be exacerbated by the rapid pace of change we are seeing in the world of work,” says Chidi King, new head of the Gender, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Branch (GEDI) of the ILO.
In the ILO's podcast on the future of work, she takes stock of the pandemic's impact on equality and inclusion policies and discusses future challenges facing the most vulnerable populations.
