Diversity and Gender Equality in AI: Pathways to Address Systemic Changes
- Organiser "session owner":
- Paola Ricaurte
- Paola Ricaurte, Associate Professor, Tecnológico de Monterrey
- Proposed Panellists:
- Gabriela Ramos, Assistant Director-General for the Social and Human Sciences, UNESCO
- Benjamin Prud'homme, Executive Director, A.I. for Humanity, Mila
- Wanda Muñoz, Consultant, Inclusive Livelihoods and Gender Equality
- The session organisers will also seek to add two additional panellists ; one government representative, to provide a public service perspective, and one industry representative, to provide an organisational-level perspective.
This session will explore initiatives that the AI ecosystem can undertake to ensure systemic change for gender equality and diversity.
The first part will seek to explore and understand how current challenges manifest and operate within the following dimensions:
- Different levels of ecosystems: international, regional, national, and local; and
- Different types of organisations: governments, education, research, industry, and NGO/non-profit organisations.
The second part will focus on how to ensure that initiatives take an intersectional approach, addressing questions like:
- Which practices have created significant impact, and how? Which have failed, and why?
- How can representation from the Global South be increased in the international AI ecosystem and, what is the role of Global North in doing so?
This session targets participants across all domains.
The goal of this session is to promote systematic application of gender approaches that will challenge and transform gender inequality at all levels of AI ecosystems.
