This month, we welcomed Leah Airt and Sharron Frammingham to the AI & Faith community. Both will be serving as contributing fellows. Their bios are below!
Leah Airt is an information professional with over 15 years of program management and leadership experience. She holds a Masters in Library Science and is recognized for managing projects and teams that require bringing structure to ambiguous and challenging scaled programs. Leah is currently leading a team as a Senior Program Manager to build data-driven operations programs that can be replicated across divisions, accounts, and time-zones. She’s excited to join the AI and Faith community as a Contributing Fellow to engage in ethical discussions surrounding developments in AI and related technologies.
Driven by her Christian faith to help people in need, Sharron Frammingham left her job in 2007 to engage in extensive non-profit activities in universities, hospitals and prisons. In addition to serving with some amazing organizations, she also originated the Octagonal Mindset theory and has spoken at TEDx. She is now back in business, working at DataForce (part of the TransPerfect family of companies and an approved vendor in data augmentation and labeling). Her work supports organizations that are developing Responsible Artificial Intelligence to solve real world problems (Google, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Meta and Bytedance).
