Discrimination

We identify direct and indirect discrimination behaviors in the public and private sector that lead to economic unfairness. We investigate discrimination bias arising from the use of algorithms, artificial intelligence and pricing policies that cause a disparate impact on protected minorities.

Our original research spans across all major economic sectors and is grounded in solid statistical methodologies. We focus on practices that have a disproportionate impact on subsets of the population that present one of the many protected characteristics such as: gender, age, ethnicity, disability and religion.

 

Our discrimination practice focuses on the many aspects of the enforcement cycle: from identifying discriminatory conduct, to estimating damages and producing expert reports assessing disparate impact.
