Partnership on AI is the leading forum addressing the most important and difficult decisions on the future of AI.
We are a non-profit that invites diverse voices into the process of technical governance, design, and deployment of AI technologies.
Our essential Partners work together across industry, academia, and civil society to understand the implications of AI advancements and ensure they benefit society equitably.
Through dialogue, insight, education, and guidance, PAI informs responsible AI solutions and identifies opportunities to address humanity’s pressing challenges.
Where We Work
While we have a presence in San Francisco, our team is now fully remote from many places across the US and Canada. We recognize the challenges involved with remote work and PAI provides support for those working at home.
We value supporting our people to grow and thrive by providing ample opportunities for development and growth, in addition to competitive benefits.
In the midst of Covid we also have additional support such as monthly mental health days and no meetings days
Diversity, Equity, and Belonging
PAI is committed to fostering an inclusive work environment for everyone. We embrace and celebrate the unique experiences, perspectives and cultural backgrounds that each employee brings to our workplace, and we reference the SHRM Code of Conduct as our benchmarking standard. PAI aims to create an environment where our employees feel respected, valued and empowered, and to create an inclusive workplace through which our team members are an integral part.
PAI is committed to taking the following actions in support of an inclusive workplace
Vision & Mission
As an independent body, PAI exists for the benefit of people and society which we define as being equitable . We empower diverse voices to participate from ideation through implementation, striving for fairness, equity, and inclusion. Justice and equity is at the heart of PAI’s vision
“Equity and Inclusion” is the first value on our list for a reason
PAI is represented by a diverse makeup of staff, but we continue to focus our efforts on improving representation and recognize that it is only a part of the story. We believe that as a form of accountability, transparency in these efforts is critical. Currently, we are focused on building our pipeline of African American, Hispanic/LatinX, and Indigenious people. We also welcome all other forms of diversity, including LGBTQ+, Veteran, individuals with disabilities, and socioeconomic status
All open positions at PAI (board, full-time, fellowships, internships and consultants) must include interviews with finalist candidates from underrepresented backgrounds. On an annual basis, PAI will identify critical dimensions of diversity that are underrepresented within the organization, according to census data. Our approach sometimes has the potential to take longer, but we believe this to be a necessary means to staying true to our values.
