Description

The World Economic Forum have said that it’s going to take 217 years to close the gender pay gap. Dr Zara Nanu (CEO at Gap Square) and her team are aiming to do this in under 20 years. If you are interested in learning about how AI is being used to close the gender pay gap then you are sure to enjoy this episode with Zara.

Zara mentioned that for companies with 10,000 employees it would take around £14 million to close the gender pay gap if it were to be done now and for every year that they don’t look at this issue they accrue another £250,000 pounds that will need to be spent eventually. Take a listen to learn how you can go about solving this issue in your business.

During the news section of The Botcast, blockchain based platform Opet which is designed to address the divide in education was mentioned. You can find out more about them here: https://bit.ly/2nz

Monmouthshire welcomed residents to ‘Love Digital’ on Friday, 25th January – St Dwynwen’s Day, the Welsh equivalent of Valentine’s Day – with the launch of Monty which is available 24/7/365 on Monmouthshire’s website – monmouthshire.gov.uk – and via its Facebook messenger service – @MonmouthshireCC.
