The World Economic Forum

An associate partner of the World Economic Forum (WEF), GEP is tapping deep expertise in AI, digital transformation and supply chain optimization to drive a global discussion on AI’s potential impacts on sustainability, diversity, and social and economic equity.

Subhash Makhija, the CEO of Clark, N.J.-based GEP, is a member of the forum’s Global AI Council, comprised of broad range of influential leaders in both the private and public sectors. The council’s members seek to share experiences and findings, shape the governance and application of AI in the global public interest, and serve as early adopters and ambassadors for protocols and frameworks developed within the WEF.

As a cornerstone in this collaborative effort, GEP will lead a workstream within the WEF to explore how the growing reliance on AI in supply chains impacts sustainability, diversity, inclusion and fairness. The project, supported by representatives from multiple partner organizations, will include – among a range additional outputs – recommendations for ensuring inclusive, ethical and socially equitable AI practices in supply chains.

The World Economic Forum, an international non-governmental organization dedicated to public-private cooperation, engages its membership on a range of critical economic, political, social and cultural issues. Partners come from organizations that are at the vanguard of their fields.
