“Why Diversity Equity and Inclusion Leaders Must Lead in AI”: A White paper by SalesChoice and HACE

Canada | May 1st, 2024 – AI’s intelligence is directly impacted by the diversity of talent responsible for examining the datasets it trains on. Leveraging past practices is not sufficient for ensuring a bright future; proactive measures are needed to address the explosion of data bias challenges. Who is accountable for ensuring data accurately represents an organization’s diversity, equity, and inclusion vision?

This May, Dr. Cindy Gordon, CEO of SalesChoice, and Patricia Mota, President & CEO of HACE, collaborated to answer this question through a comprehensive white paper titled “Why Diversity Equity and Inclusion Leaders Must Lead in AI”.

Dr. Cindy Gordon remarked,Chief Diversity Officers (CDOs) play a crucial role in developing Trusted AI practices to mitigate AI data bias risks. As AI systems are trained on large datasets, they can easily inherit and perpetuate existing biases resulting in unfair or discriminatory outcomes. Sometimes, they may even hallucinate, especially in generative AI methods. We need CDO’s leading in AI governance and increasing their AI Digital literacy.

Patricia Mota echoed this sentiment, We must equip our current and future workforce with the necessary training and resources, such as AI, to be successful in their careers and contribute to society. Given that Latinos are the youngest and fastest-growing demographic, and if measured by GDP, the U.S. Latino economy would rank as the fifth largest in the world. Managing AI data bias risk is a governance risk that if unaddressed is a major risk to our future.

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, Chief Diversity Officers (CDOs) play a crucial and purposeful role in leadership, particularly in mitigating the serious risks associated with AI data bias. This responsibility extends beyond traditional diversity and inclusion efforts, requiring collaborative action with a range of stakeholders, including data scientists, ethicists, cyber-security experts, legal and policy experts, and more. Key questions addressed by Dr. Cindy Gordon and Patricia Mota in this whitepaper include:

  • Where are you at in leading AI in your organization?
  • What is AI Data Bias?
  • What is the role of a CDO?
  • What is the role of a CDO in AI Governance?
