This lab discussion will be examining women's role in ride-hailing in both developed and emerging markets. New technologies and business models are rapidly opening alternative pathways to economic growth in emerging markets, offering opportunities to reshape lives while improving economies. The sharing economy is a notable part of this transformation, as peer-to-peer networks can broaden access to goods and servces, leverage underutilized assets, and create new forms of work. But for this to become reality the challenges to making this happen must be identified and overcome. The session will highlight and discuss a new report Driving Toward Equality: Women, Ride-Hailing.
