Women in Big Data

Jamie Gloor

A great group of (mostly) computer scientists welcomed me with open arms last week for a conference on women in big data in Zurich. I met an interdisciplinary group of fellow UZH scholars Carolin Strobl (Psychology), Anne Scherer (Marketing), and Sarah Petchey (Natural Science) as well as many new faces from ETH, Europe, and beyond! I learned a lot about Artifical Intelligence (AI), algorithms, and machine learning from some of the programmers themselves; we also discussed some of the ethical and policy implications for fairness, gender equality, and more!

I left with new knowledge, ideas, contacts, and even some bling! Below is an absolutely appropriate button for the event given to me by Caitlin Kraft-Buchmann, founder and CEO of Women at the Table, who gave an inspiring, evidence-informed keynote on Affirmative Action for Algorithms.

I also gave a 90-second madness talk (in true “science slam” form: it all rhymed!) highlighting my interests in AI in hiring from the employee perspective, including key examples from practice such as Amazon and Unilever, touching on some work by my University of Basel colleague, Gwendolin Sajons (Business).

Let's get digital! ...and inclusive.

Delighted to share that Prof. Brooke Gazdag (LMU) and my new big data research on digital inequality and collaboration in science has been accepted for presentation at the inaugural the ETH-organized conference on organizing in the digital era in Switzerland.

Our symposium on humor (with Prof. Rashpal Densa-Khalon, University of Surrey, co-organizer, and Prof. Cecily Cooper, University of Miami, discussant) that includes my paper on humor in uncertainty, as well as the symposium on gender bias in organizations (led by Prof. Samantha Paustian-Underdahl, Florida State University, and Dr. Kate Frear, Center for Creative Leadership) that includes our paper on identity and motivated reasoning (with Profs. Tyler Okimoto, University of Queensland, and Xinxin Li, Shanghai Jiao Tong University) have been accepted for presentation at the 79th annual Academy of Management Conference in Boston.

Looking forward to meeting colleagues, coauthors, and new contacts, starting, joining, and continuing discussions, and sharing science on a local and global scale.
