We are working to make AI more ethical and socially acceptable with the help of WOMENPOWER

We are driven by our passion for gender equality and technology


Our basic principles


Elimination of discrimination based on gender, ethnic origin, ideology, social background, skin color, etc. We should eliminate gender biases/stereotypes from the minds of future generations.

Social mobility

Everyone should have the opportunity to expand their career and thus their social status. We believe that women should not be forced to choose between family and work.

AI / Digital Focus

We believe that women have excellent skills required for digital and technical careers, and to advance in digital technology, women must be equally represented in the workplace. Due to the gender imbalance in AI (currently 18% women), we are focused on empowering and hiring women for AI jobs. This is a function description to be used in the description field.


We analyze the needs of women, especially mothers, who want to build a successful career that combines family commitments.

​We advise technical employers on how to implement effective gender equality measures, women- and family-friendly organizations, and how to attract and retain women in technology.


WAIA offers a wide range of services covering diverse needs in the AI ​​world, including education and career-related services for women, as well as recruitment and audit-related services that act as a bridge between employers and talented motivated women.
