Dr. Dorothea Baur
I am the founder and owner of Baur Consulting and an expert with many years of international and interdisciplinary experience in the field of responsibility, sustainability and ethics. In addition to my role as a consultant, I am an internationally sought-after speaker and lecturer.
I successfully advise companies, pension funds, foundations and NGOs on issues related to sustainable investments (ESG), artificial intelligence and ethics, as well as corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability. I also regularly give presentations and lead workshops for various target groups on these topics.

Among other things, I am a Fellow of ForHumanity, an organization working on the development of an audit procedure for automated decision-making systems, as well as the ethics lead of Women in AI Switzerland. I am also a member of the Ethics Board of POSMO, a Swiss data cooperative with a mobility app, and a Founding Fellow of AI Talk Live, an international initiative to promote Artificial Intelligence for the benefit of humanity. Moreover, I am an associate at the Institute for Social Banking, and a member of the jury of the Ethics and Trust in Finance Prize.
