Keith E. Sonderling

Commissioner, United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)

Keith E. Sonderling was confirmed by the U.S. Senate, with a bipartisan vote, to be a Commissioner on the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in 2020. Until January of 2021, he served as the Commission’s Vice-Chair. His term expires July of 2024.

The EEOC is the federal agency responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information.

Since joining the EEOC, one of Commissioner Sonderling’s highest priorities is ensuring that artificial intelligence and workplace technologies are designed and deployed consistent with long-standing civil rights laws. Commissioner Sonderling has published numerous articles on the benefits and potential harms of using artificial intelligence-based technology in the workplace and speaks globally on these emerging issues.

Prior to his confirmation to the EEOC, Commissioner Sonderling served as the Acting and Deputy Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division at the U.S. Department of Labor. Before joining the Department of Labor in 2017, Commissioner Sonderling practiced Labor and Employment law in Florida. Commissioner Sonderling also serves as a Professional Lecturer in the Law at George Washington University Law School, teaching employment discrimination.

As the proposed AI Act continues progressing through the legislative process, our host, Dr Emre Kazim, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of Holistic AI, and guest speaker Minesh Tanna, Partner and Global AI Lead at Simmons & Simmons LLP, will be providing you with the essential insights you need.

Our panel will dive deep into key amendments, such as the definition of AI, the definition of 'significant risk', and inferring sensitive data on gender and health. We'll contextualise these amendments and discuss what they mean for AI developers.

Additionally, we'll explore the next steps in the legislative process, including the plenary vote, and examine standardisation. The CEN/CENELAC process has started, but will standards be ready?
