Women are making big strides in the workforce in 2020, yet they face big challenges going forward.  A U.S. Labor Department’s report in December showed that women make up the majority of the workforce at 50.04%.  Yet, even with the mass number of women in the workforce, the percentage of executive-level roles held by women remains relatively low. Only 6% of the Fortune 500 have women as CEOs and only 2% or 60 of the Russell 3000 companies (the 3,000 largest companies domiciled in the U.S. and U.S. territories) have a board made up of at least 50% women according to Equilar.

Nobody would argue that those percentages aren’t low, but they are up from what it was just a few years ago. Change, although slow, is happening as reflected in the increase seen for the past nine consecutive quarters in the Equilar Gender Diversity Index (GDI), a quarterly update of female directors in the Russell 3000. Additionally, according to the Women in Workplace 2019 report by McKinsey & Company and Lean In, more companies have higher numbers of female C-level executives than in previous years.

Though the numbers are improving, the question remains, how do we help our organizations create a culture of inclusion and diversity.

Ben Eubanks is an HR industry analyst and influencer. He is the Principal Analyst at Lighthouse Research & Advisory where he oversees the development of research, assets and insights to support HR, learning and talent executives. He is also the founder of HR community upstartHR, the co-founder of the HRevolution movement and host of the We're Human podcast.

Ben will present the session HR Tech Market Landscape: AI for HR at the upcoming HR Technology Conference.

Attendees will learn about the key areas where algorithms, machine learning and chatbots are being leveraged in the employee experience and explore new trends such as vendors’ artificial intelligence ethics councils and what new consolidations mean for buyers looking for the latest technology in the market. Ben will go beyond just theory and leverage deep research, case studies and examples of practical use cases for you to utilize AI to create more human workplaces, not less.

With so many excellent sessions at HR Tech, it will be difficult to decide which to attend – and as is usually the case -- many of your top picks will occur at the same time.

I asked Ben a few questions to give attendees a better understanding of the information his session will deliver.
