CPR Dialogues 2020- Creating an Inclusive Economy in a Digital World

Watch the full video (above) of the panel discussion on ‘Creating an Inclusive Economy in a Digital World’ featuring Himanshu Wardhan (Managing Director, Etsy India); Rituparna Chakraborty (Co-founder & Executive Vice President, TeamLease Services); Berges Y Malu (Director, Public Policy & Policy Communications, ShareChat) and moderated by Sabina Dewan (Senior Visiting Fellow, CPR; President & Executive Director, JustJobs Network).

As the 21st-century progresses, India, along with the rest of the world, is witnessing the unfolding of rapid and significant technological change. This Fourth Industrial Revolution, as it is often called, is restructuring our labour markets.  Against this backdrop, this panel explored how technology is changing the nature of work, and especially its implications for the workforce participation of women, who constitute half of the working-age population. It is essential to understand how the demand for workers will change and how the productive potential of women can be harnessed if technology has to be leveraged in service of development and growth.

The panel was organised as part of the second edition of CPR Dialogues, held on 2nd and 3rd March 2020 at the India Habitat Centre. Addressing the theme of Policy Perspectives for 21st-century India, CPR Dialogues 2020 provided a window to the India of the future. Experts from around the country and the world engaged with and debated these very significant development and policy challenges that India faces in the coming decade.

ThePrint India was the digital partner for the event.
