For #InternationalWomensDay2021, We Recognize & Honor The Achievements of All Women, Especially Those Working To Shape Our Future.

The 2021 theme for International Women’s Day, #ChooseToChallenge, is more than just a hashtag. #ChooseToChallenge asks us all to commit to seeking out and celebrating women’s achievements, and to challenge gender bias and inequality in our daily lives with the purpose of creating a more inclusive world. 

As the field of AI continues to merge with existing industries, it is increasingly important to ensure that women’s perspectives and skills are utilized to help shape the field. AI algorithms offer new, exciting solutions, but it is the responsibility of the human authors to be vigilant for bias and minimize it whenever and wherever possible.  

Despite women having consistently counted for over half the professional workforce since 2003, they only make up 26% of Computing and Mathematical jobs in the United States. The gender gap can be seen at the highest level within the field. According to a study published by Silicon Valley Bank in 2020, over half of startups have no women in C-Level leadership roles, with only 40% reported to have a woman in a C-Level position.
