US regulatory and enforcement agencies increasingly are taking a hard look at AI and its potential bias and unintended consequences. Simultaneously, many C-Suite executives are overconfident about the risk of AI-related threats, especially given the critical blind spots that exist in HR and the use of AI hiring tools.

Baker McKenzie, in collaboration with Coleman Parkes, recently surveyed C-Suite level executives on the use and management of AI-enabled hiring and promotion tools. The AI and Corporate Oversight in the US survey illuminated three significant gaps that require C-Suite attention.  A copy of our survey report is available for download here.

To better examine the AI-related challenges identified through our survey and the steps companies should take to address them, we invite legal, compliance, and human resource professionals, along with data scientists and innovators, to join in a conversation with our special guest, EEOC Commissioner Keith Sonderling, during which he will share his insights on key considerations for the use of employment-based AI tools, including best practices for the elimination of bias and the compliant deployment of AI under federal employment law.

Hosted by Baker McKenzie AI partner Bradford Newman, this invitation only event will be followed by a Q&A session and the opportunity to visit with the Commissioner in a casual setting.

We look forward to seeing you.
