The f<A+i>r Network

In this challenging moment the <A+> Alliance, and Gender at Work, supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), has launched a Feminist AI Research network.

The pilot phase of this invitation-only global Feminist AI Research network will gather a cohort of eminent social scientists, economists, and activists, side by side with data, machine learning and computer scientists to discuss how to fix the system and leverage AI for women’s rights.
