Detroit, Michigan,, Dec. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) ( OTCPK:AITX ), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions for enterprise clients, today along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices Inc.

All data is for calendar year 2022 and is reflective as of December 22, 2022.
“Since our founding, we have been committed to building and promoting a workforce that reflects the diversity of the US, Canada and other regions our team resides and works,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX. “We have made great progress, but there is more work to be done. Together, we can and will continue to foster an environment the best represents all people – one that makes all people feel welcomed, heard, and valued.”
Key findings of AITX’s 2022 Workforce Diversity Survey include:
- The workforce is composed of a growing percentage of people of color (approx. 49.3 percent), with 31.5 percent of employees identifying as East Asian, South Asian, or Southeast Asian.
- Since June of 2021, racially and ethnically diverse employees in the workforce have increased from 44.4 percent to 54.8 percent.
- Representation of women in the Company’s workforce increased 24 percent since June of 2021.
The survey report looks at the racial, ethnic, and gender breakdown of the Company’s global workforce. “As AITX and RAD continues its recovery from the pandemic, we see improvement in the diversity of our workforce, specifically, almost ten percent increase in the number of racially and ethnically diverse employees in the workforce,” said Mark Folmer, President of RAD. “This is a critical step forward, and we are encouraged by the progress that we’ve made thus far but recognize that we still have work to do to build a fully representative workforce.”
AITX and its three subsidiaries collectively have 85 employees spread across 7 departments, sales, marketing, hardware development, software development, production, client services, and administration.
