Program Manager


ABOUT AI4ALL

AI4ALL is a national nonprofit that is transforming the pipeline of AI practitioners and creating a more inclusive, human-centered discipline. We empower students to be AI Changemakers by cultivating an environment where they develop skills in critical thinking and relationship-building, and expertise in responsible AI. 


To accomplish this, we seek students from communities that have been excluded in the AI space. Then we help them build identity in the field, and tap into their own agency and initiative as they build technical and leadership skills. While all are welcome to apply, AI4ALL prioritizes students whose race, gender, or ethnicity has been historically excluded from AI: Black, Hispanic and Latinx, and Indigenous folks; and women and non-binary folks. Our programs run in partnership with colleges and universities around North America.


We are launching the diverse next generation of AI changemakers through education, ethics, and relationship-driven networks. AI4ALL has received funding from Melinda Gates/Pivotal Ventures, Prudential Financial, Accenture, General Motors, and SoftBank among others and has been featured in the New York Times, TIME, CNN, The Washington Post, USA Today, and The Atlantic. 


THE OPPORTUNITY

The Program Manager will focus on the program management of the programming that builds our students’ expertise in Responsible AI and AI literacy. In Fall 2023, AI4ALL will offer two such programs (Discover AI and Apply AI) before transitioning to an updated program model; Discover AI and Apply AI will not be offered beyond Fall 2023.  In Spring 2024, AI4ALL will transition to an updated more streamlined program model that consists of an AI portfolio project component and a career readiness component. Each semester, the portfolio project component will culminate with a Student Symposium that will bring together students and sponsors who are passionate about Responsible AI for networking and discourse. Students will showcase their achievements while sponsors will share exciting AI developments and their contributions to the field.


The program manager will be responsible for driving the implementation of Discover AI, Apply AI and the AI portfolio project component and Student Symposium of the updated program model. This role requires collaboration with various departments across the organization. This position reports to the VP, Programs & Operations and is based remotely.
