Summary

Women are marginalized in the workplace, and COVID-19 has worsened the disparities. 80% of pandemic job loss has affected women, and 25% of women might reduce their hours or leave altogether. Workplace discrimination is also intersectional. For example, Black and Hispanic women had the highest rates of unemployment throughout the beginning of the pandemic. Opportunity is not equal in the US, but with your donation, AI can level the playing field.

Challenge

Women, in particular mothers and minorities, have unequally born the economic weight of Covid-19, including higher unemployment rates and fewer promotions than their male counterparts. The global virus emergency has amplified the workplace inequalities that have long existed, and that spans borders. Starting with this campaign, AI for Good and you can make tangible change possible through AI and machine learning. Every $10 makes an additional company accountable for equity in the workplace.

Solution

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can reduce discrimination and increase equity by analyzing corporate hiring and promotion practices. The machine-generated results will be turned into a Public Scorecard, giving you the knowledge and power to support companies that align with your value system. You can also help us create best practices that define "bias" and eliminate discriminatory computer programs. Together we can use AI to make the workplace equal and inclusive, and shatter the glass ceiling.

Long-Term Impact

As our economy continues to move online following the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be all the more easy for diversity and inclusion priorities to fall through the cracks. Your support for our Workforce, Diversity & AI Program will get our project off the ground. Continuing support will be vital to see this project through to a global launch. We can ensure companies are accountable and transparent, directly taking action against employers for workplace bias & discriminatory practices.
