About the event

The Asian Women Series event is designed to empower Asian American women in leadership roles across diverse industries. By featuring esteemed keynote speakers, engaging panel discussions, and interactive sessions, this event aspires to craft a dynamic and enlightening experience for all attendees.

The first event in the series will explore the intersection of artificial intelligence and authentic inclusion. Globally, studies show that women in the labor force are paid less, hold fewer senior positions and participate less in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.  A 2019 UNESCO report found that women represent only 29% of science R&D positions globally and are already 25% less likely than men to know how to leverage digital technology for basic uses.  As the use and development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to mature, it's crucial to recognize the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in shaping the future of AI and its impact on society.
