Closing Manufacturing’s Gender Gap

Closing Manufacturing’s Gender Gap

With over 70,000 employees, Maersk wanted to achieve greater gender parity in its recruitment process. To achieve this, it took the unusual step of partnering with a game studio to develop an online game for hiring managers. The game was used throughout the recruitment process to nudge users in instances where bias might exist―for example, gendered language in a job advert which could then be fixed.
 
Technology can therefore play a crucial role as an enabler of greater diversity and inclusion — and this is needed now more than ever. According to STEM Women, an organisation working to encourage more women into the field, 60 per cent of female STEM students feel they have had their future career prospects affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
