The Role of Women in 4IR: Developing a truly diverse and inclusive workforce
Speaker: Professor Liz Bacon, Deputy Principal and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Abertay University
Our understanding of what the Fourth Industrial Revolution means for today’s students is evolving at an exponential rate. As the Higher Education sector embraces new and varied approaches to teaching and learning, its ultimate goal must be to prepare students for a future where fields such as AI, FinTech, Life Sciences and Sustainability are growing rapidly – and require a diverse workforce to accelerate innovation. With the STEM professions now more instrumental than ever in wider sectors, it’s essential that women are able to see computing and the IT industry as viable careers.
