Faced with the challenges of digitization and more specifically of artificial intelligence, it became clear to Arborus the urgency and importance of ensuring that automated decisions based on algorithmic processing do not disadvantage women, or minorities, due, for example, to the quality of the data used or the design of the code, where men are still overwhelmingly in the majority.Added to this issue of inclusion, and therefore of ethics, is that of the necessary competitiveness of European companies in the face of global technological giants.It is for these reasons that Arborus launched the GEEIS-AI label on September 7, 2020, as an extension of the International Charter for Inclusive AI launched on April 21, 2020 in partnership with the Orange Group. Under the high patronage of Secretary of State for Digital Cedric O, with the support of Elisabeth Moréno, Minister in charge of equality between women and men as well as Delphine O, Ambassador and Secretary General of the UN World Conference on Women, and Nicole Ameline, Vice-President of CEDAW-UN.In doing so Arborus makes the GEEIS audit a comprehensive strategic structuring tool that enables companies to measure their policies in terms of professional equality and/or diversities in a truly inclusive perspective.
