According to recent research by the World Economic Forum and LinkedIn, only 22% of jobs in artificial intelligence are held by women, with even fewer holding senior roles. This refers to all disciplines - from marketing to programming or data science.
The gap appears even starker at the “FANG” companies—according to the AI Now Institute just 15% of AI research staff at Facebook and 10% at Google are women.
Most HR and recruiting professionals at tech/AI companies are aware of the lack of diversity and inclusion and are increasingly investing to change that. However, they struggle with some core questions around that challenge.
Women in AI's mission is to help shape inclusive AI. Our non-profit organization consists of a global community of highly skilled and well-educated females in tech & AI. We ARE the diversity and talent companies around the world are looking for. Most importantly, we do have a voice and if we join in the call for more diversity together - we will be heard.
