Top 25 Women in AI


At RE•WORK, we are strong advocates for supporting women working towards advancing technology, so ahead of the upcoming Toronto AI Summit, on November 9-10, we set out to highlight inspirational women who are working at the forefront of AI developments, and who deserve recognition for their achievements.

While we set out to create a list of just 20 – we couldn’t narrow it down, as there are so many inspiring and prominent females in this space! Hear from many of them at our Toronto AI Summit, and more at our Women in AI Reception, both being held in Toronto next month.

Help us to continue highlighting leading women in AI by nominating your influential woman for our next edition. Submit your entry here.

RE•WORK holds Women in AI eventspodcasts, and blogs. Get in touch if you’d like to collaborate or support our initiatives!
