Women in AI (WAI) is a global network of female experts and professionals in the field of Artificial Intelligence working towards gender-inclusive AI that benefits a global society.

Committed to supporting and rewarding excellence to women in AI, the Wai Awards 2021 will be prestigious in their recognition and vital in building the credibility and exposure for women in AI in North America  across Canada, USA & Mexico.

WAI Awards 2021 Gala Dinner

A spectacular invite-only Wai Awards Gala Dinner will be held in October 2021 to announce the winners and the finalists and to honour and recognise North American women in AI.

Invitees will include leaders and influencers from industry, academia, government, prominent AI thought-leaders, AI enthusiasts, venture capitalists, and AI startups.

Award Criteria

Each of the 6 award categories have judging criteria based on innovation, research, leadership, inspiring potential, global impact, and the ability for the AI solution to do good for the community and citizens.

The panel of curated judges are fully independent subject matter experts who will ensure an accurate, fair and transparent process.


Who can Apply?

The Wai Awards 2021 will honour the top North American female innovators, researchers and leaders in AI: the pioneers who are taking the road less travelled; the women who are paving the way for others to reach even further and for those who dare to dream even bigger.

Are you a female innovator in the AI field and based in Canada, the US or Mexico? We are looking for inspiring women who are working, leading, creating or demonstrating innovation in AI.
