UNIs FWOW division urges companies to establish AI & Data Governance Councils. The Council should be comprised of management representatives and shop stewards/worker representatives. Mandated to oversee, govern and check the organisation’s use of data, algorithms, (semi) automated processes, the Council is there to hold Executive Management accountable and auditable to the collective group of workers and managers in the organisation.
In addition, the Council should examine internal complaints, whistleblowing claims and answer employee questions. Such a council would eliminate mistrust and spur the organisation’s ethical, transparent and responsible data and AI governance strategy and practices.
