The power of community

At Women in AI, we believe in the power of our community, based on mutual support, caring, and sharing. This way we hope to bring awareness, inspire and educate next generations. Women in AI has grown into a powerful community with more than 8.000 members (and counting) in 140 countries and our team in The Netherlands is still growing. This powerful group of volunteers are actively changing the role of women and minorities in AI.
