Digitalisation is a topical and controversial issue. The digital revolution of work has often been regarded as a threat characterised by automation and the consequential loss of jobs. In the context of diversity, this problem is compounded and results in the exclusion of certain target groups (e.g. people with disabilities, people with a migrant background, older employees and single parents) from the labour market. In contrast to this view, the INCLUDE perspective on digitalisation is that it, in fact, represents an opportunity.
