Women at the Table

Women at the Table

Establishing new norms, now.

From the data we use for the decisions we make, to who makes those decisions and has influence at decision-making tables…

Women at the Table breaks down barriers to systems change so that women and girls are able to fully and actively participate and influence the world’s social, political and economic spheres.

Project Highlight

The < A+ > Alliance

For an inclusive digital future.

Given the scale at which Algorithmic Decision-Making (ADM) systems and machine learning are being deployed, we need Affirmative Action for Algorithms, to correct real life bias and barriers that prevent women from achieving their full participation and rights in the present, and in the future, we invent.
