Your organization wants to value individuals and groups free from prejudice and to foster a climate where equity and mutual respect are intrinsic. This can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical ability, religious beliefs – or political beliefs, other ideology or intersections of these qualities. Understand diversity helps your employees work well together and create a safe, positive and nurturing environment. Diversity matters beyond the working environment in the wider movement toward a society that encourages and respects each person.
Identify sources of inequity, de-bias training data and develop algorithms that are robust to skews in data, urge James Zou and Londa Schiebinger.
