The AI Advantage

Unlocking Opportunities for Women in the Workforce

Two women talk about work while drinking coffee

In this episode of Crina and Kirsten Get to Work, get ready to dive deep into the world of artificial intelligence! We’re here to get you psyched about the endless possibilities AI brings.

But hold on, before we can fully embrace AI, there are a few things standing in our way. Maybe it’s our lack of awareness or understanding that’s holding us back. Or perhaps it’s concerns about privacy and security. And let’s not forget those resistant-to-change folks out there. But hey, just like any other skill, we can overcome these obstacles with a little practice and training.

Here’s some mind-blowing news for you: a recent Goldman Sachs report reveals that generative AI could impact a whopping 300 million jobs every year across various industries. We’re talking healthcare, education, social work, finance, law – you name it! That’s HUGE.

But guess what? AI isn’t just a game-changer for everyone; it’s a game-changer for women too. From inclusive hiring practices to learning platforms for skill development, remote work support, and empowering women entrepreneurs – AI has their back.

Now, we can’t ignore the potential downsides either. If AI is trained on biased data or designed without considering equality, it could perpetuate gender bias. That means discrimination and inequality might become part of AI’s programming. And who knows, AI might even snatch jobs traditionally held by women.

All that being said, AI can also be a whole lot of fun! So why not give it a shot? Sign up for ChatGPT, Bard, Copilot, or Bing and let your imagination run wild. Write a letter, plan an office party, or even whip up a killer job description with the help of AI. The possibilities are endless!
