I think sometime Ethics can seem to be something that's hard to grasp, but what I love about Laura is she's able to take something that seems overwhelming and make it simple. I always enjoy being in conversation with her because I always know I'll hear a new question that I haven't explored yet, which allows me to find the real answers for me and the businesses I serve. If you have any opportunity to be in conversation with Laura - about anything really, but ESPECIALLY AI Ethics - please don't hesitate!



From the start, she's been very proactive and involved with what I wanted to do and what my goals were even if at times I didn't even know what they were. I loved all the reading assignments and our weekly discussions helped me a lot. The fact that this mentorship has evolved into friendship is yet another bonus. Laura is a great professional, she is multimodal and never stops :)
