About the event
Welcome to the Official Launching of IWIB4AI Think-Tank
International WoMenX in Business for Ethical AI (IWIB4AI) is a global think-tank created to represent civil society in the AI conversation.
IWIB4AI serves as a multidisciplinary, diverse, and inclusive platform to voice civil society’s concerns and to help build a world where AI is developed, deployed, and used ethically.
IWIB4AI stems from the Swedish professional network International Women In Business (IWIB), founded under the umbrella of The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce in 2018. IWIB has been registered as an interest group at The European Parliament transparency register since 2021 to monitor The EU AI Act.
