The Gender Impact report represents the total impact of emerging technologies on the workforce (in FTEs) and how this differs by gender.
Skip ahead to:
The Gender Impact chart represents the total impact of emerging technologies on the workforce by gender. The chart allows for a comparison of both automation and augmentation impacts on genders.
The chart uses colours to convey the insights:
- Outer light blue - the proportion of aggregated FTEs that will be automated.
- Middle blue - the proportion of aggregated FTEs that will be augmented.
- Grey - unimpacted workforce.
How is Gender Impact modelled?
Gender Impact is modelled by aggregating all job impact predictions across the workforce and displaying the total workforce impact proportionally by gender.
How do I apply the insights from this chart?
The Gender Impact chart can be used to compare the risk of automating and augmenting technologies on gender. An example of how this could be applied is when viewing jobs that are primarily filled by one gender. If these jobs are at risk of automation, this could indicate potential future gender imbalance in the workforce. It's useful to hone in on the gender mix within different org units and locations to understand how the job transition requirements of each gender are unique and can be used to inform your workforce planning, transformation initiatives, and DEI strategy.
How is the FTE Gender Impact Ratio modelled?
The Gender Impact Ratio is the ratio of impacted female FTE compared to male FTE in the workforce selection given the filtered technology types at the selected year. For example, if 200 female FTEs are predicted to be impacted, while 150 male FTEs are predicted to be automated, then the ratio would be 1.3 female FTEs: 1 male FTE.
