Salesforce AppExchange | The Economic Case for Using AI to Close the Gender Equity Gap

Jul 3, 2018 | In the News

Closing the gender equity gap could increase the United States’ GDP by $2T. While $2T is the top line number, let’s peel it back and start to understand the economic implications of using AI to ensure we have the bias-free decision making needed to close the gender equity gap.

For instance, equal pay would cut poverty among working women and their families by more than half and add $513B to the US economy. We would also reduce poverty rates in retirement since more than twice as many women live in poverty than men among people 65 and older.
