Women’s History Month: Supporting & Promoting Women In AI

Women’s History Month is an annual celebration that recognizes the remarkable achievements and contributions of women throughout history. It is a time to reflect on the struggles and triumphs of women who have paved the way for future generations, breaking barriers and challenging societal norms. 

AI has become an increasingly integral part of our daily lives, redefining industries and presenting enormous possibilities for improving human-machine interaction. But like many other scientific and mathematical domains, the field of artificial intelligence has historically been male-dominated. Women have been underrepresented in AI research, development, and leadership roles, leading to a gender gap that has far-reaching consequences for the industry and society as a whole. 

At Bright Apps, this month served as a great time for us to recognize the incredible women who are leading and transforming the domain of artificial intelligence and its related fields. We hope to inspire other women to understand the opportunities available to them within artificial intelligence, as well as do our part to raise awareness about the challenges facing women in AI. Please note that this list of women is not exhaustive but serves as an indicator of the incredible capabilities possessed by women in the field of artificial intelligence.

Obstacles and challenges for women in the field of AI

Despite the growing prominence of AI and its potential to transform various aspects of our lives, women continue to face significant challenges in this field. These obstacles not only hinder their professional growth but also have far-reaching consequences for the development and impact of AI technologies.

    • Underrepresentation of women in the field: According to the World Economic Forum’s 2020 Global Gender Gap Report, women make up only 26% of the AI workforce. This disparity is even more pronounced in tech giants like Google and Facebook, where women comprise between 12% and 36.7% of technical roles (Statista, 2022). The limited diversity in AI development and decision-making processes can lead to biased AI systems that perpetuate gender inequalities, further exacerbating the challenges faced by women in the field.
    • Lack of early exposure and mentorship: The scarcity of women in leadership positions results in an underrepresentation of women in AI companies and a lack of visibility and influence for women in the AI community. This reality is exacerbated by inadequate support systems, limited funding options, and nonexistent development programs, and insufficient policies and initiatives to address gender-specific challenges in AI workplaces.
  • Gender stereotypes and societal expectations: Young girls are discouraged from pursuing STEM fields because of societal perception that men have a natural aptitude for mathematics, science, and technology. Job postings may use language that inadvertently appeals more to male candidates, while interview questions and evaluation criteria may favor traits traditionally associated with men, such as assertiveness and competitiveness.
  • Lack of representation of women in leadership positions: With fewer visible female role models and mentors, young women may struggle to envision themselves succeeding in the field. Additionally, women’s perspectives and experiences are often overlooked in decision-making processes, resulting in AI technologies that may not adequately reflect or address the needs and concerns of diverse user groups.
  • Societal expectations are unequal regarding work-life balance: Women are often expected to shoulder a greater share of domestic responsibilities, such as childcare and household management, which can make it challenging to maintain the demanding schedules and workloads associated with AI research and development. The lack of flexible work arrangements and support for work-life balance in many AI workplaces further exacerbates this issue.

Gender diversity means breaking silos that bar women from AI

As Elmira Bayrasli, newsletter author and CEO of Interruptrr, pointed out, “Diversity isn’t cosmetic. It’s structural. The reason to have women, people of color, and people from different socio-economic backgrounds isn’t to make someone feel good. It’s to prevent silos and echo chambers. Diversity brings about different perspectives and solutions. That’s why it’s important.”

Women have been at the forefront of many groundbreaking advancements in artificial intelligence. Fei-Fei Li made seminal contributions to the field of computer vision, creating the influential ImageNet dataset that has been instrumental in enabling machines to accurately classify and recognize images.

Women have also been leading voices in illuminating critical issues around bias, fairness and ethics in AI. Timnit Gebru’s research has exposed how machine learning models can absorb societal biases around race and gender, perpetuating discrimination at scale. Joy Buolamwini’s groundbreaking work revealed the shocking disparities in accuracy of facial recognition systems for people with darker skin, especially women of color.

Meredith Whittaker has been a prominent advocate for prioritizing ethics and social responsibility in the development of AI technologies. She co-founded the AI Now Institute with Kate Crawford to study the social implications of artificial intelligence and promote best practices for responsible AI development. Joy Buolamwini launched the Algorithmic Justice League to raise awareness about algorithmic bias and develop practices for accountability and transparency in AI.

Together, these women demonstrate the immense positive impact that gender diversity can have on the field of AI.
