On 3 October Lidia Arroyo, a researcher at Gender & ICT, offered a seminar on Digital Skills for Employment from a gender perspective. The event was organized within the framework of the Master’s Degree in Employment and the Labor Market: Intervention and Coaching for Work of the UOC, with the aim of deepening in a topic of interest for the program.
Lidia Arroyo placed the issue of digital skills for employment at the centre of the debate, emphasizing the results of her ongoing investigation in which she analyzes the impact of digital inclusion policies aimed at women to promote their employability. She elaborated upon the contributions and limits of the acquisition of digital skills in terms of the position of the users of such programs in the labour market, and in terms of the distribution of tasks and work-life balance in their daily life.
After the presentation, an exchange of questions, opinions and experiences about this topic of general interest ensued.
