Dear WSAI community,
We’re pleased to introduce the latest addition to the World Summit AI and InspiredMinds team. Meet Eve (Evgenia) Logunova, Country Lead for the Netherlands and Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Ambassador.
“Diversity and inclusion is at the heart of InspiredMinds, since launching in 2016, our aim has been to democratise access to emerging technology and science by providing a platform created by diverse communities, that is accessible to all – regardless of gender, race or income. I am thrilled that Evgenia is joining us to lead this cause locally in the Netherlands, her energy and passion for equality is infectious and we look forward to working with her” says Sarah Porter, Founder of InspiredMinds.
Welcome to the team Eve! Tell us a bit about you and what your role is within the community
I’ve just joined InspiredMinds in the role of Country Lead for the Netherlands and Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Ambassador.
It is my honor to be the central point of contact in the local market for stakeholders and partners of InspiredMinds and World Summit AI, ensuring the highest possible value of the event for the participants as well as overseeing the Diversity & Inclusion agenda.
Many people in the global AI & Tech circles know me as Women in AI Ambassador (Netherlands) and Diversity & Inclusion activist. I’ve been working in the Innovation field for more than 15 years supporting the AI and digital transformation at both corporates and startups. I am a big fan of adding a human voice to Data, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud, and Internet of Things, and am a strong believer in the power of equality. In addition to my role at Women in AI, I am an entrepreneur and an active member of the global startup community working closely with startup founders as a consultant and a mentor.
I am often moderating global and local events. In 2019, I was moderating the Startup Track at World Summit AI and in 2020, the CyberShark session at Intelligent Health AI. In 2019, I initiated the WaiACCELERATE program aimed to bridge the gender gap in the startup ecosystem. There are now 33 women innovators from around the globe participating in WaiACCELERATE to build their own ventures in the fields of AI, Data Science & Machine Learning.
