Skills4Good AI Josephine Yam recognized as one of 21 Asian Entrepreneurs Shaking Up Canada

Did you know that Asian Heritage Month falls in May to commemorate the first Japanese immigrant to arrive in the United States on May 7, 1843? Over 20 years later, in 1869, the transcontinental railroad was also completed in May 10. The railroad enabled the West Coast to expand and thrive. Roughly 20,000 Chinese laborers worked under dangeroussometimes deadlyconditions with poor compensation to complete the project. Asian Heritage Month aims Asian and Pacific Islander ethnic groups for their past and continued contribution to the success of North America today.

In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, Startup Canada featured Skills4Good CEO & Co-founder, Josephine Yam, as one of 21 Asian entrepreneurs who are shaking up Canada. As a woman, visible minority, and immigrant, Josephine passionately advocates for equity, diversity, and inclusion in AI to create a human-centered AI world. What better way to drive institutional change than entrepreneurship? Businesses are struggling to keep up with rapidly evolving privacy and AI regulations that are becoming commonplace globally. Josephine and her co-founders saw this need which aligned well with their core values to use tech for goodand so Skills4Good AI was born.
