The Gendered Impacts Of AI On Women’s Careers

This originally appeared on Forbes on May 17, 2024.

In the evolving landscape of artificial intelligence, one question increasingly stands out: Is there a connection between the fact that AI is predominantly trained by men, and the fact that AI's potential to disrupt jobs predominantly impacts women? This was one of many questions considered by Mercer as its future of work practice pondered if women are right to be wary of AI.

Since women hold more of the jobs expected to be disrupted by AI, they will likely be more adversely impacted, according to Mercer's 2024 Global Talent Trends Study. For example, the administration, healthcare, education, and social services industries all have high proportions of women and are among the sectors most likely to experience widespread job losses due to AI and automation.

Kate Bravery, Mercer Global Advisory Solutions & Insights Leader, says that while it is true that women are currently experiencing more disruption due to AI, she questions if that disruption is linked to the fact that more men are involved in training AI models.
