Today’s kids are born into a world shaped by AI. But how can we prepare them for a future that we can’t imagine yet? Kids Code Jeunesse is using AI, algorithm literacy, coding and digital citizenship to educate young Canadians about the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and how tech can help meet them.

Kate Arthur is the founder and CEO of Kids Code Jeunesse (KCJ), a national charity that introduces computational thinking, coding, artificial intelligence & ethics to communities across Canada. KCJ’s #kids2030 initiative will educate 1,000,000 kids and 50,000 educators on artificial intelligence, ethics, and on using technology to achieve the UN's Sustainable Development Global Goals by 2030.

Kate was raised and educated in the U.K., Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Argentina and Canada, and has witnessed the powers of an educated country and an uneducated one. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from Concordia University (Montreal, Canada), and is currently completing her eMBA at McGill and HEC universities (Montreal, Canada).

Kate actively speaks at international conferences and contributes to policy discussions to make sure youth are included in discussions and decisions on AI. She is the recipient of many leadership awards, including 100 Entrepreneures Qui Changent Le Monde (Femmessor, 2020), Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 (WXN Network, 2020), Empowerment Leader of the Year Award (WCT, 2020), Visa Entrepreneur / Innovation Leader of the Year Award (Canadian Fintech & AI Awards, 2019),Woman of Merit: Education (YWCA, 2020).
