5 Ways Artificial Intelligence Brings Diversity to the Modern Workplace
Diversity has become one of the pillars of the modern business world, and in many countries across the globe, it is one of the prerequisites for a company to even exist, let alone build a thriving brand. In the quest for higher workplace diversity and a more diverse recruitment process that nurtures equality among genders, races, and communities, business leaders are increasingly employing the help of Artificial Intelligence.
As if AI wasn’t popular enough throughout the modern business sector, HR specialists are now leveraging its computing power and laser-like precision to pinpoint brand weaknesses and opportunities, and bring the right employee to the company without sacrificing diversity in the process. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the five ways Artificial Intelligence can help you build a more diverse workforce, in order to ensure compliance and take your company to new heights of success.
Emphasizing Gender-Neutral Recruiting
AI technology is becoming more nuanced and refined as the years go by, and there is no denying that professionals throughout the business sector can leverage its power and potential to make better decisions.

In turn, this stifles the age-old “battle of the sexes”, and most importantly, helps create gender-neutral industries.
Let’s take a look at a concrete example. In an article published by MIT’s Sloan Review, a Software company named Atlassian used Artificial Intelligence to create gender-neutral recruiting messages, texts, and stories that resonated with all gender demographics. In turn, this yielded an amazing 47% increase in the recruitment, onboarding, and retention of female recruits in a niche that was previously considered “a male-dominated sector.” This goes to show that no matter the industry you’re operating in, AI can help you create a gender-neutral recruitment strategy.
