How can we increase the number of women in AI? What is the role of successful women in AI to provide future opportunities? How should businesses be adjusting?
In this episode of IBM thinkLeaders podcast, we are joined by guests Lili Gil Valletta (Co-Founder and CEO, CIEN+ and Culturintel) & Amanda Stent (Natural Language Processing Architect in the Office of the CTO at Bloomberg). We talk to Lili and Amanda about building a culture of mentorship around women in AI, how they can be strength in vulnerability and the importance of creating pathways for non-traditional backgrounds to work in AI.
“I think we need both men and women together realizing that getting more women in tech is not about being P.C. and doing the right thing...It's about recognizing that 80 percent of consumer spending decisions in this country are done by a woman. So anything you're designing, if it doesn't have a female perspective, you're probably going to have an incomplete perspective.” Lili Gil Valletta (Co-Founder and CEO, CIEN+ and Culturintel
“If we can support women when they are inside computing and technical careers and really allow them to reach the stage where they are running companies, provide them with the mentorship, the venture capital, if we have men who are willing to be mentored by and collaborate with women actively, not just mentor them, but be willing to be led by women, that way we can encourage women to really become part of and continue as part of technology as a field.” Amanda Stent (Natural Language Processing Architect in the Office of the CTO at Bloomberg)
