Women in AI

Bringing all minds together 


Women in AI (WAI) is a nonprofit do-tank working towards gender-inclusive AI that benefits global society. 


Our mission is to increase female representation and participation in AI. 


We are a community-driven initiative bringing empowerment, knowledge and active collaboration via education, research, events, and blogging.





We believe in the power of community based on mutual support, caring and sharing to bring awareness, inspire and educate next generations.

WAI is the first global community of women in AI, embracing diversity and forming an inclusive environment of reflection.  

WAI relies on an amazing team of active ambassadors growing local communities and managing WAI activities on the ground.

Women in AI is the proud member of the AI4EU project supported by European Commission as part of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. For more information regarding the project visit www.ai4eu.eu.

We are thankful to all our partners for sharing our vision and supporting our initiatives!


“Now is the time for us all to learn

about AI and start embracing its advantages in a responsible and ethical way. That's where WAI plays an important role as members gain knowledge, build their network of peers, and contribute to the industry's diversification. Seeing more AI-empowered decision makers who are women is critical for the non-biased  AI future.”
