Genevieve Smith


Genevieve Smith is an Affiliate of the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy.

Smith is the Associate Director of the Center for Equity, Gender & Leadership at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. Here, she examines socio-technical questions of how bias in AI is perpetuated through organizational governance and team structures, as well as how to advance equity and inclusion within teams and technology products.

Smith has conducted research on gender and technology for over a decade. Before Haas, she worked with the International Center for Research on Women, UN Women, and UN Foundation. She’s published various papers on topics of gender, justice, work, and technology and holds a Master’s in Development Practice from UC Berkeley.

Smith’s research interests lie at the intersection of gender and technology. In particular, she’s interested in the ways AI is developed and managed in the West with impacts on marginalized communities globally, especially women and non-binary people, as well as participatory action research and design justice.
