Pay equity means equal pay for work of equal or comparable value, regardless of gender.
The gender pay gap is the difference between women’s and men’s average weekly full-time equivalent earnings, expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings. It is a measure of women’s overall position in the paid workforce and does not compare like roles.
The future of the workplace stands to benefit from advances in technology. Technology can remove barriers to labour force participation, increase access to flexible working arrangements, enable workers to transition to new jobs or sector of employment, allow time for more complex tasks, and increase productivity and innovation.
But the intersection of gender and technology also highlights workplace inequities. The under-representation of women in the education, jobs, and sectors that produce technology influences technology design and function.
This can impact how society interacts with technology, entrench gender bias, and exacerbate existing workplace inequity.
