BE OUR 2020 <A+> TECH FELLOW!

The <A+> Alliance for Inclusive Algorithms is seeking up to 2 technology fellows to pilot algorithms with affirmative actions to foster gender and race equality into systems. If you are designing AI systems and interested in exploring how machine learning and artificial intelligence can impact the lives of women and girls for good, this fellowship is for you.

For six months you will work closely with the f<A+I>r Network and with Women at the Table to develop technology prototypes and pilots and test a different future for gender inclusion. The post is remote, however, the fellow will need to own equipment and reliable Internet connection, as well as availability for coordination calls in a CET-compatible timezone.

What are we looking for?

  • Early career technologists building ML systems and AI.

  • Interested in public interest technology.
