Steve Jobs said it best, "tech alone is not enough" ... we need people and diverse people at that. While tech runs on it's own, its created by humanity and we need to make sure we are creating a world of tech that will make society stronger and more inclusive
The only way we will see a AI reduce Gender Bias is if the database teaching these systems is unbiased.
The beliefs we share as a society will be exponentially perpetuated through automation unless we mindfully train these systems from the start. This isn't something we will be able to retroactively correct.
Daily we're reminded of the missteps & misuses of tech and data. I'm so inspired by Craig Newmark's gift to Consumer Reports to inform & protect consumers.

Concepts like "booth girls" and other systemic issues drive the gap. Tech is a toxic industry and we all need to come together to remedy the years of sexism and racism that have happened
The need for diversity in tech is felt across the industry
When you look who is leading the good in the world, it's a woman. I am so moved by the work of Elena Sigman to help people seamlessly learn tech basics.
