Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the fastest-growing fields in technology and the global market, and demand is only expected to increase. And as more and more organizations explore ways to achieve their AI goals, skilled professionals are in high demand, including talented women in AI.

But as Susan Sly and other leading women in AI know, this gender gap isn’t due to a lack of skill, motivation, or experience. Instead, there is a significant need for support and empowerment for the representation of women in artificial intelligence, which Susan Sly is highly dedicated to fulfilling.
