  1. Breaking the Bias:  Women Working in Tech


“While we are making progress, the statistics of women in technology and engineering are far from even closing the gap. Only about 25% of jobs in technology are far from even closing the gap. Only about 25% of jobs in technology are held by women in 2021.”


Author: Reshma Ramachandran, Group SVP and Head of Transformation at the Adecco Group.

  1. How To Prevent A Lost Generation of Women At Work?


“Societies need to think much more seriously and imaginatively about how to address the often-prohibitive costs of childcare and elder care. For many years I was against positive discrimination, because I never wanted to wonder whether I had been promoted for my capabilities or my gender. But I have changed my mind because we cannot afford to wait: at the current rate of progress, we are not looking at only a generation to achieve gender equality in the economy – it’s 267 years.”


Author:  Valerie Beaulieu, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, The Adecco Group
