The Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, is disrupting the manufacturing industry and its labour market.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution

In the European Union, only 21% of scientists and engineers in manufacturing are female. Another striking statistic: more than half of men earning degrees in IT access digital jobs compared to one quarter of women.

As Industry 4.0 starts shaping the future of manufacturing, the job profiles require expertise in areas where women still remain underrepresented in most countries.

So, if the digitalisation of the industry is an open path to improve safety and work quality, can it also contribute to making a social impact by reducing the gender gap and promoting equal gender opportunities?
