Algorithms may be perceived as being an objective way to instill diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in an organization, but AI is by no means exempt from the unconscious biases that human beings exhibit, and we must guard against thinking of AI as a silver bullet. We already know that a more diverse workforce leads to greater innovation, but diversity in the teams designing the AI underpinning future workplace processes will also help to keep it less biased, and ensure organizations achieve their DEI goals.
