About Josephine

Hi, I'm Josephine.

I'm an AI lawyer, AI ethicist and the CEO & Co-Founder of Skills4Good. I'm a passionate advocate of equity, diversity & inclusion in order to advance fairness, accountability and sustainability in this AI-driven world.

I have been admitted to practice law in New York (USA), Alberta (Canada), Ontario (Canada) and the Philippines. I have rich and diverse work experiences in the 3 sectors --- business, government and nonprofit --- in Canada and internationally. Thus I have developed the skills and understanding to harness their collective power of purpose so we can all build the world we want.

I graduated from Stanford University Graduate School of Business’ Executive Program. I also completed my Master of Laws degree at the University of Calgary. I pursued advanced legal education at Harvard Law School and the University of Toronto. I also received the Award of Achievement in Diversity & Inclusion from the University of British Columbia. I obtained my undergraduate and Juris Doctor Degree of Law degree from the Ateneo De Manila University. In April 2021, I will be completing my Master of Arts in Philosophy degree specializing in AI Ethics at the University of Guelph.

As a woman, visible minority and immigrant, I want to leverage my expertise in AI law and AI ethics to advocate for equity, fairness and social justice towards building a sustainable, human-centred world.

Josephine is quoted in the University of Guelph, CARE-AI Annual Report: “As a lawyer, I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Joshua (Gus) Skorburg's (DOP) AI ethics course. I now understand how crucial it is to integrate law, ethics, business and technology so that humanity can truly flourish in this brave new world of AI.”
