Howcroft, D. and Rubery, J. (2019), Labor and Industry

Among the many books, conferences, workshops and consultancy reports, there is a notable silence regarding the impact on gender. The aim of this article is to present a corrective, by arguing that if the gender bias that is embedded in the current social order is not tackled head-on, the future world of work is likely to exacerbate gender equality gaps.
