During the Inclusion in Action session at VMworld 2018 US, Audra Jenkins will discuss the impact of AI, robotics and automation on women in the workforce. In this TED-style discussion, Jenkins will share practical recommendations and insights on how gender and minority disparities are affected by new technologies disrupting the workplace. Session attendees will learn how to prepare for this shift, leverage technology to capture the human connection and propel their businesses forward.


Jenkins’ session will take place on Monday, August 27 from 5 to 7 p.m.


Mandalay Bay Hotel & Conference Center, Las Vegas, NV


Technology continues to positively influence the workplace across all industries; however, 57 percent of jobs currently filled by women will be at risk from these same technological advancements between now and 2026, according to the World Economic Forum. In this session, attendees will learn how:

  • AI, robotics and automation are disproportionately impacting female workers
  • employers can overcome these challenges and strengthen their workforces
  • to lead in today’s expanding global economy
  • Now — not five or ten years in the future — is the time to prepare for the impact of automation on the workforce. Organizations can extend their impact in the talent market, fuel innovation and increase ROI by having diversity and inclusion strategies in place that take into account emerging technologies. Join Jenkins as she shares vital information about these trends and what business leaders can do today to retool their workforces to come out on top.
