Online Event: AI and gender equality: friends or foes?

On 7 March 2024, to mark International Women's Day, the Paris Peace Forum and the Paris School of International Affairs of Sciences Po co-organized a panel discussion entitled "AI and gender equality: friends or foes?"


Advances in generative AI have shown technology’s potential to improve education, healthcare and employment. At the same time, we have witnessed the exacerbation of pre-existing inequalities, discriminations and stereotypes. The session explored both the risks to gender equality from AI developments and opportunities to build more ethical frameworks and guardrails to address gender biases in and from technology. 



With the participation of:

  • Fabienne Hara, Deputy Director-General, Paris Peace Forum
  • Anne Bouverot, President of the Board, École normale supérieure de Paris and Co-chair of the Committee on Generative AI of the French Prime Minister
  • Gabriela Ramos, Assistant Director-General for the Social and Human Sciences of UNESCO
  • Raphaële Xenidis, Assistant Professor, Sciences Po School of Law and Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow
  • Nicolas Miailhe, founder of The Future Society

The discussion was chaired by Arancha Gonzalez Laya, Dean of Sciences Po's Paris School of International Affairs
