Karin Tischler and Aoife O’Brien speak about flexible working, specifically job sharing, and the impact this has on gender equality. We cover topics such as the gender pay gap, transferable skills, top sharing (a new concept to me!), the importance of role models, unpaid care work. We also touch on the difference between the US and Europe, and Karin shares some wonderful examples from SAP.
