There has been much discussion of diversity in tech in general, and of course, having people from varied backgrounds/experiences - especially those who are committed to equality - in all companies and organizations is important.
Perhaps now is the time to begin discussing where having a variety of experiences could have the most impact - not only for building better technologies and businesses, but also for building better societies as a whole.
We have already seen examples of how AI led and built by predominantly white, male teams can cause financially expensive and socially dangerous results. As such, many investors (and even governments) are recognizing that diversity is key in these influential technologies.

Venture capital investment in all-female founding teams hit $3.3 billion in 2019, representing 2.8% of capital invested across the entire U.S. startup ecosystem this year, according to the latest data collected by PitchBook.
While that number may seem insubstantial, it’s a step up from last year’s total. In 2018, venture capitalists struck 580 deals worth $3 billion — up from just $2.1 billion in 2017 — for all-female teams, or only 2.2% of all U.S. deal activity. So far, female-founded and mixed-gender teams have raised a total of $17.2 billion, with roughly three weeks remaining in 2019. That’s 11.5% of all venture capital investment, an increase from 10.6% last year, when those groups attracted $17 billion across some 2,000 deals.
