ATLANTA, April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Randstad will participate at Inclusion 2019 this month to discuss how technological advancements impact women in the workplace and what diversity and inclusion strategies can help to achieve gender parity. Randstad executives, Audra Jenkins, SPHR, SHRM SCP, CDP, chief diversity and inclusion officer of Randstad North America, and Floss Aggrey, senior director of compliance, diversity and inclusion at Randstad Sourceright, will be onsite to discuss possible solutions to the many challenges women in the workplace face, like gender inequality and threats from technology and automation.
Jenkins will address the "Effects of AI on Women in the Workplace" during a session taking place on Thursday, April 11, from 4:45 to 5:15 p.m. GMT+1. Although beneficial to society as a whole, technological advancements in the workplace continue to disproportionately displace female workers across industries.

Aggrey will participate in the panel session, "Embedding I&D to Help Close the Gender Pay Gap," which will take place on April 11, from 12:15 to 2:55 p.m. GMT+1.
