Introducing Diversity Atlas in Ho Chi Minh City
In August, we presented our latest research on “An Enhanced Gender Gap Prediction Algorithm using Machine Learning and Small Data” at the International Conference on Business Management, Humanities and Social Science in Ho Chi Minh City. Vietnam is not only one of Australia’s fastest growing trading partners but also the fastest-growing digital economy in South East Asia and home to a large tech talent pool. We also had a chance to attend a roundtable discussion hosted by Study Melbourne and Global Victoria where our Chief Technology Officer Rezza Moieni was able to network with a group of subject matter experts in the fields of Environmental, Social and Corporate governance (ESG) and DEI.
Diversity Atlas and its application is better understanding of people in a cohort. The way Diversity Atlas can help address social pillars of ESG was discussed in details.
