About Angle Bush
Angle Bush, Visionary, Leader, Founder – Black Women In Artificial Intelligence. After attending an event that did not fully reflect the diversity needed to ensure access and opportunity in the artificial intelligence sector, Angle decided to do something about it.
In 2020 she founded Black Women In Artificial Intelligence, an organization whose mission is to Educate, Engage, Embrace, and Empower Black women in the Artificial Intelligence industry. In the past two years, the organization has seen phenomenal growth, becoming a global organization whose members span four continents North America, South America, Europe, and Africa.
In 2021 Angle spearheaded the campaign to create National Black Women In Artificial Intelligence day, which is now celebrated annually on August 1 to amplify the voices of Black women and honor their contributions to Artificial Intelligence. Aligning with the mission to provide access and opportunity, the organization has also developed partnerships with some of the top companies in the nation including Amazon, Capital One, Expedia, and NVIDIA. From learning opportunities to mentorship programs, the organization continues to create initiatives that focus on creating spaces for Black Women to thrive.
Before starting Black Women In Artificial Intelligence, Angle worked in the oil and gas industry for over fifteen years serving in several positions from Process Improvement Manager to Vendor Relationship Manager. She also served as the Executive Producer of Your15Minutes Radio an online podcast that focuses on entrepreneurship. All of which has led her to this mission, this moment.
Angle earned a Master’s degree in Administration and a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Development with a concentration in Public Administration from Central Michigan University. She also attended Harvard University where she studied History.
