There Are No Girls on the Internet: Centering the Wellness of Black Women in AI as a radical act

Zoom Room 4B

We already know Black women can face hostility in the AI space that leaves us feeling unsupported, burnt out, or ends with us being pushed out of these spaces entirely. When this happens, it has consequences for everyone. When AI isn’t built by inclusive teams, these technologies can make life harder for people who are already marginalized. The need to center Black women’s wellness in AI can be an act of social good. The more Black women who feel compelled to stay in these spaces, the more these voices can shape the technology that impacts so much of our world. Ayodele Odubela will share her story as a Black woman in AI and we will facilitate a community conversation and brainstorm takeaways on how we can center the wellness of Black women in the AI space.
