Certification helps board members and executives navigate the ethical and technological issues inherent in AI to steer their organizations toward sustainable, trustworthy practices

Diligent, a leading GRC SaaS company, announced its AI Ethics & Board Oversight Certification for corporate directors and executives. The program will help leaders navigate the context and basics of artificial intelligence (AI), associated opportunities and risks, ethics and compliance frameworks and regulatory considerations, to enhance their oversight of AI.

“The promise and impact of AI is top of mind in the boardroom,” said Dottie Schindlinger, Executive Director of Diligent Institute. “Directors see the benefit of using AI to enhance efficiencies and gain insights, but risks can arise without the right tools and oversight. This certification will outline the risks and opportunities associated with AI against the background of today’s regulatory landscape, and help leaders identify governance models to consider the ethical and compliance implications of AI.”

“The Volkov Law Group is pleased to partner with Diligent Institute in creating a certificate program that brings the murky problem of AI and ethics into relief. This program is a must for board members interested in the overlap of ethics and compliance with concerns over the use of AI, which has the potential to transform the way organizations function,” said Michael Volkov, CEO of Volkov Law. “Of course, the use of AI means that boards need to develop a coherent strategy for dealing with AI issues in the workplace. The goal of this training is to precipitate meaningful discussion among stakeholders about issues like bias, accountability, reliability, and access, among other things.”
