Why IWD Day Matters
Beginning in 1910, March 8 became annually observed as International Women's Day which is a celebration of women's achievements and contributions to society. As we commemorate this day, we are reminded of how far the world has come in terms of gender equality, but more importantly, how much work still needs to be done. For instance, less than a quarter of the AI workforce is female, and based on data shared by the World Economic Forum (WEF), childhood bias is evident. According to the WEF, women have fewer opportunities to study STEM subjects because of factors such as societal norms and cultural norms. In order to increase the number of women in AI, experts suggest that equal opportunities for women must be created. Dr. Natalie Morse, a senior data scientist at Torqata Data and Analytics, explained to us how universal childcare and formalized federal parental leave policies could change the current statistics on women working in AI and related fields.
