Statement on Acknowledgement of Traditional Land

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

Dear Inclusive Design Community,

I'm really happy to share some good news about Jutta winning a prize for her work in AI. And, in her address at the award ceremony, she included the wonderful people of the IDRC. (See link to video captured by Simon Treviranus, below. Thank you, Simon!)

All of the other nominees for the AI DE&I award were also extremely accomplished with very distinguished careers and cutting-edge research, so Jutta's win is especially impressive -- and also fitting. The competition clearly was very fierce.

According to Women in AI:

 DE & I (Diversity Equity & Inclusion) AI Leader  of the Year Award

A woman who has the potential to change the world through their contribution to make AI more diverse, equitable and inclusive. A technology leader on AI, who has significant contribution towards making AI better for marginalized, minority and underrepresented groups.

Eligibility Criteria:

  *   Significant contribution towards driving innovation or bringing in change to make AI more diverse, equitable and inclusive in AI policy making, product or systems

  *   Providing innovative solutions or proposals to reduce gaps in your country within the AI ecosystem.
