“After cutting her teeth in the US administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Mimi Alemayehou, an Ethiopia-born, Kenya-raised American development finance expert, is now making waves in the global private sector.”

“Mid this year, [Timnit] said she was raising money to launch an independent research institute based on her work at Google’s Ethical Team and taking in what she had achieved as the founder of Black in AI, a community of black AI researchers.”
