ICRIER, along with ADBI hosted a webinar titled ‘Discerning the impact of digitalization on Female Labour Force Participation in India’. The webinar focused on the impact of the use of digital infrastructure on female labour force participation rate. The discussion revolved around the different mechanisms by which the use and access of mobile phones and internet can significantly impact FLPR. The major policy prescriptions discussed were around improving digital literacy, providing jobs that match the skillset, and designing nudging mechanisms to increase the use of mobile phones by females.

We thank the panelists for their extremely valuable insights on this topic. We also thank ADBI for their support in this project.
