The critical issues related to the digitized workplace include the demand for new skill sets and job security. Many workers lack digital skills and may not have access to training programs to improve their skills. The impact of technology on worker rights, information privacy, and accountability to workplace redundancies and change management are also critical issues.

Assistive technologies are products and services designed to provide relief and improve an individual’s functioning, independence, and quality of life. Only 1 in 10 people in need have access to assistive technology due to high costs, a lack of awareness, availability, trained personnel, policy, and financing. There is also a lack of accessibility in emerging technologies, and few countries have a national assistive technology policy or program. Lack of funding or financial affordability is also a critical issue.

Access to devices and connectivity infrastructure is a global issue, with two-thirds of the world’s households lacking access to the internet. The cheapest available smartphones are unaffordable for many people worldwide, especially in low and middle-income countries. There is a wide digital gap globally, and young people are the driving force of connectivity. Women are more likely to be left behind, and there is a need to bridge the wealth gap between developed and developing countries through innovation and enabling access to the internet

Message from the Chair, C20 India 2023

Our Inspiration

Amma sees the whole world as a flower. Each petal represents a nation. If one petal is infested with pests, it will affect the other petals as well. The beauty of the whole flower suffers. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to protect and nurture this flower. All living beings in creation are interdependent. The rhythm of Nature depends upon humanity. It’s necessary to maintain the rhythm of the mind and body for the sake of our health and lifespan, for the sake of humankind and Nature.
Amma,
Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi ❤️
