Prior to the launch of this label, Arborus inaugurated the "International Charter for an Inclusive AI" on April 21, 2020. This charter commits signatory companies, including Orange, Danone, EDF and L'Oréal, to "promote gender diversity in teams working on AI-based solutions", à "To make designers, developers and all the actors involved in the creation of AI aware of the stereotypes and biases that can generate discrimination while ensuring "the quality of the data used to ensure the fairest possible systems".

While there is obviously work to be done on the technical nature of the tools powered by AI, Arborus is betting on the awareness and training of the players, from design to use, but also on the diversity within the teams that work on the products. "We realize in Europe that we are not even at 20% of women in the AI fields, which are the jobs of the future."regrets Ms. Lunghi.

Orange, a founding member of the Arborus Foundation, will be the first group to receive the label next month. The labels are granted for a period of 4 years, with an intermediate audit after two years conducted by Bureau Veritas.
