Voices in #AI
There's been an onslaught of new AI events and conferences in the past year (great for the scene!) but we feel like there is a lack of balance in AI / ML speaker lineups. Our goal for this event is to examine leading conferences and events' relationship with representation, diversity and inclusion. We will use public data from large AI events to create a report on diversity and inclusion. We'll also include ideas on how to increase representation. We believe that if you have power to feature people in front of an audience, you have a responsibility to prioritize equal representation.
**Special note: Our intended focus is large, for-profit AI/ML industry conferences. We will publish mostly aggregate data. Our purpose is not to draw attention to specific groups. We will not include conference or event names in our published report. All of the data we will be examining is in the public domain.**
