And if we zoom into the tech world, the numbers aren't much brighter, with women holding over 28% of all the jobs in the tech industry. It's like hosting a global tech party and forgetting to invite half the world!
We are not just observing these statistics; we are on a mission to change them.
Imagine a world where women aren't just consumers of AI but are actively shaping its future. That's the world Mia envisions.
With a monumental goal to upskill 1 million women worldwide, Mia is setting the stage for a tech revolution led by women, for everyone. Think of it as adding a million more seats to the tech table, ensuring everyone gets an invite to the party.
By championing this cause, Mia aims to bridge the gender gap in tech, ensuring that the future of AI and technology is diverse, inclusive, and representative of all. Because when women thrive in tech, the entire industry benefits.
Why we need Diversity in AI: Beyond Representation to Ethical Innovation
The rapid evolution of AI is undeniable, but so is the glaring lack of diversity in its development. A non-diverse AI industry poses significant risks, not just in terms of representation but in the very fabric of the technology itself.
For instance, the World Economic Forum revealed that a staggering 78% of global professionals with AI skills are male, and studies have shown that over 80% of AI professors are men. This skewed representation can lead to AI systems that perpetuate biases, as seen in Amazon's recruiting AI system which showed bias against female applicants due to its male-oriented historical hiring data.
But why is women's perspective so crucial?
Beyond the moral imperative:
Diverse viewpoints in AI enhance explainability and ensure comprehensive data consideration, reducing the risk of overlooking "atypical" data.
A varied AI workforce across races, genders, ethnicities, and ages minimizes AI system discrimination.
Companies emphasizing gender diversity see a 21% increase in above-average profitability [Source].
The need for diversity in AI is not just a matter of representation but a necessity for creating ethical, unbiased, and effective AI systems.
