BUILDING INCLUSIVE AI BY DESIGN

The Women4AI Daring Circle focuses on the design of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that drives inclusion, both in its development and its application.

We need to create an environment where women are empowering AI, AI is empowering women, and where inclusive AI is implemented into organisations’ AI practices. Our work in the Daring Circle is focused on facilitating this ecosystem transformation; through inspiring companies to act and pledge their commitment to inclusive AI whilst adopting effective policies to drive these commitments forward.

We aim to create an ecosystem where AI is designed by diverse teams and governed appropriately, so that AI can become a powerful asset to right existing disparities and shape a more inclusive world. Since Artificial intelligence has a growing influence on the way we work and live, AI will only fulfil this potential if everyone has an equal share in its development and adoption.

The Daring Circle is led by Microsoft in collaboration with L’Oréal, BNP Paribas, Publicis Groupe, AXA, Bayer, Lenovo, Société Générale and ExxonMobil. UNESCO participates as an Institutional Partner, HEC as an Academic Partner, PwC and Shearman & Sterling as Knowledge & Insight Partners and the Oxford Internet Institute as an expert.
