Empowering the leaders of tomorrow.

Artificial intelligence is providing one of the greatest opportunities our world has ever seen.

At this moment, we have the chance to ensure its development is in safe hands for the future.

Women in AI seeks to address the bias and gender disparity that exists today while guiding young women in their AI careers for tomorrow.

Our heart

The Young Women Leaders in AI Program.

With initial funding by the Australian Government’s Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship (WISE) program, Young Women Leaders in AI brings together Australia’s brightest young women in a community of education, mentorship and opportunity in the field of AI. A 12-month program, participants will emerge as confident innovators in the technology industry. Applications are open to women aged 16 – 26.

Our why

Right now, we're defining the future.

As a catalyst for changing the way we as humans exist, right now, there is no bigger conversation than artificial intelligence. Its potential for positive application is undeniable, but equally the risks associated with getting it wrong could be disastrous.  

We’re stepping up to help develop, connect and inspire women so they can make their contribution to the future of AI.

As a mentor during the 2018 YWLIAI camp, it was an incredible experience to share knowledge with these young ladies and day by day to watch their confidence grow.

It’s a great event for anyone to come and try something new. I’d never taken an AI workshop before, so coming here and meeting people that are also not from a tech background is really good and makes you more willing to try it.
