Women and the Future of Work in Asia and the Pacific

January 31, 2018 @ 8:00 am - February 1, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Thailand Women Field

Co-hosted by the Australian Government’s Department of Employment  and the International Labour Organisation, the question is “What is the future of work that we want?”

How fair can we all make the future of work? How can we shape, manage and encourage change so that women have an equal stake in the world of work?

The event will be live webcast: Go to Conference Page on Wednesday, 31 January at 9:15 BKK time (02:15 GMT)

Leaders from across Asia and the Pacific – government, unions, business, and academia – will highlight the tools and policies needed to ensure that women have an equal share in the region’s economic potential.

Cimate change, technology, casualisation of work, demographics, globalization, migration… These drivers are radically transforming the world of work as we know it.  As the ‘Future of Work’ is being discussed around the world, women continue to be the most under-utilised and potentially game-changing factor for a fair and prosperous economy. Countries in the Asia and the Pacific region, whether high or low income, can no longer afford to lose out on the social and economic potential of gender equality. However gender equality and women’s full participation are often missing from the policy debates.
