Despite organizations’ increased focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in recent years, the earnings gap remains an issue, dividing the workforce by gender and impacting certain industries – retail, healthcare and education – more than others. Women also continue to shoulder a disproportionate amount of caregiving responsibilities without protections, such as paid leave, to preserve their career paths.

During the Women in HR Technology Summit, Clarissa A. Peterson, SPHR, GPHR, LPEC, President and CEO of Ohana HR, and former board chair of HRCI, will present “Can HR Technology Help Drive Gender Equality?” In this session, Peterson will join global talent acquisition leader Amy Cropper, formerly of Amazon, and HR expert, entrepreneur and author Laurie Ruettimann to discuss how technology can serve as the starting point for gender equality initiatives. Attendees will learn how HR technologies can support comprehensive people analytics, diversity recruiting, pay equity, coaching and mentoring, fair leadership development, career pathing opportunities and more.
