Diversity & Inclusion

For Black History Month, a Video Guide to CES 2024

Overview Because the tech industry is bigger than the sum of its parts, and composed of far more than devices and software, CES 2024 offered extensive programming focused on people. Specifically, the show highlighted the richness that diverse voices bring to tech innovation and discovery. It’s Black History Month, so we’ve rounded up on-demand sessions that examine aspects of tech accomplishment and opportunity designed to elevate innovators from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.

Be inspired while binging on content that underscores a central theme for CES 2024: Innovation for All.
Across the show’s many stages, from C Space to conference sessions to meet-ups and networking events, CES helped bridge cultural and racial divides in the interest of tech innovation.


AI and the Diverse Workplace

A highlight of D&I programming at CES 2024 was this C Space episode of CES Tech Talk, Future-Proofing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion with AI, featuring Omnicom Chief Equity and Impact Officer Emily Graham.

Graham discusses how global media company Omnicom is training AI for good. She explores the impact of AI on diversity and inclusion efforts in the business world, observing that “AI has become a really big part of the way that we do D&I.”

She added, “The more I learn about AI, the more I recognize it is truly a mirror of our society: The good, the bad, and the ugly. When it comes to diversity, equity, inclusion…we have to be very mindful that AI just spits out the mirror that it sees, the information that it has. So I'm more focused on impacting the world as we know it so that AI shows up better for us, and the biases that we see, and some of the misinformation that we see so that we can have a stronger AI.”

Available on demand, CES 2024 sessions included a wide variety of perspectives.
