VentureBeat is proud to bring the Women in AI Breakfast and Awards back online for Transform 2021. In the male-dominated tech industry, women are constantly faced with the gender divide. There is so much work to be done in the tech industry to become more inclusive, to bridge the gender gap while creating a diverse community.

Year after year, VentureBeat is committed to highlighting the importance of women leaders by providing them with the platform to share their stories and obstacles they face in their male-dominated industries. As part of Transform 2021, we are excited to host our annual Women in AI Breakfast, presented by Capital One, and to recognize the achievements of female leaders with our Women in AI Awards.

Women in AI breakfast:

VentureBeat’s third annual Women in AI Breakfast, presented by Capital One, commemorates women who lead the AI ​​industry. Join the digital network session and panel on July 12 at 7:35 a.m. Pacific.

This digital breakfast includes networking and a discussion on “Women in AI: a seat at the table”. Our panelists will examine how we can get more women into the AI ​​workforce, as well as the roles and responsibilities of corporations, universities, governments, and society at large in achieving this goal.

Speakers include Kay Firth Butterfield, Head of AI and Machine Learning and Executive Committee Member, World Economic Forum; Kathy Baxter, Principal Architect, Ethical AI Practice, Salesforce; Tiffany Deng, Head of Program Management – ML Fairness and Responsible AI, Google; and Teuta Mercado, responsible head of the AI ​​program, Capital One. Registration for Transform 2021 is required to participate.
