Using Responsible AI to Meet DEIA Goals in the Federal Government

Executive Order 13985 has renewed the focus on advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) in the federal workforce. Federal agencies that have been subject to nondiscrimination laws for decades now must expand efforts to hire more people from minority and under-represented groups.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a powerful and proven tool for improving hiring diversity. Modern talent intelligence platforms can help agencies attract more diverse applicants, remove human bias from the hiring process, and advance DEIA goals. But agencies should tread cautiously, as not all AI technologies are created equal. Improving diversity outcomes requires fair and responsible AI.
