Ep 319: Driving Diversity With AI

As employers increase their efforts to improve diversity in their hiring, there is a growing debate about the role technology can play in solving diversity challenges. It is evident that tech isn't a silver bullet here with something that is very much a human problem; however, there are certainly ways that technologies such as AI can help to identify the scale of the problem.

My guest this week is Mahe Bayireddi, CEO and Co-Founder of Phenom. Mahe is a thought leader in the AI space and has some valuable insights to share on the role it can play in diversity, equity and inclusion.

In the interview, we discuss:

▪ Bias in recruiting

▪ Why D&I issues can't be solved with AI

▪ When AI makes things worse

▪ How AI can create an awareness of bias that can be used to change human thought processes

▪ Leadership, accountability and the importance of C Suite goals

▪ Redesigning talent and reimagining work for the future
