We Stand With Timnit

When we started planning for our 100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics™ Summit I never imagined that we would be talking about the firing of one of the most preeminent and beloved AI scholars of our times. Timnit Gebru’s contribution to ethics and diversity in AI is immeasurable. It is unconscionable that any company would so blatantly abuse its privilege and power with zero accountability. It is wrong and it is unacceptable.

We stand with Black women. We stand on the side of what’s right. We stand with Timnit. To be silent is to be complicit.
