Who we are​

Women in AI (WAI) is a nonprofit do-tank working towards inclusive AI that benefits global society. We are a community-driven initiative bringing empowerment, knowledge, and active collaboration via education, research, events, and blogging. At Women in AI, we empower women and minorities to become AI & Data experts, innovators, and leaders. We encourage ethical applications and responsible use of artificial intelligence. WAI was founded in 2016 in Paris, France, by Dr. Hanan Salam, Caroline Lair, and Moojan Asghari. What initially started with a small Facebook group has grown into a powerful community with more than 10.000 members (and counting) in 140 countries. The WAI NL team comprises 15 volunteers who want to support our mission to make AI inclusive. Our team is working on mentorship programs, a youth activation program, an inclusive talent fair, and accelerator programs.
