GEMinAI Program


The GEMinAI (Gender Equity Mentoring in AI) Program addresses gender inequity within artificial intelligence fields, where women make up only 25% of AI specialists (World Economic Forum, 2021). GEMinAI aims to narrow this gap by connecting women and gender non-conforming undergraduate and graduate students with AI industry professionals for support, encouragement, and assistance along their career journey.

Mentors and mentees commit to at least 4 one-hour sessions across 2 semesters (2 in Fall and 2 in Winter) with a recommended 6 sessions. Meetings can be in person at the mentor’s workplace, a nearby location, or virtually based on mutual agreement and convenience.
