The Ethical AI Supply Chain: Purpose-Built for Impact from Day One

We believe that connecting people to dignified digital work and paying them living wages can solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges—from reducing poverty, to empowering women, and mitigating climate change.

Give Work, Not Aid

Sama is a pioneer in the field of impact sourcing. Through the combination of our leading technology platform and worker training programs, we increase economic opportunity for those in underserved communities.

Upskilling For Long term Career Development

With upskilling focused on machine learning, digital skills, and soft skills we help our team members launch long-term careers. Through SamaU, our training data experts build skills to ensure long term success and career development.

Advocating for an Ethical AI Supply Chain

We're committed to helping shape the future of ethical AI by working collaboratively with industry leaders and organizations like The Partnership on AI and the Haas Center for Equity, Gender and Leadership.

Through our work with Vulcan, a project and investment company that uses data to make a positive impact on endangered species, climate change, and ocean health, we have been awarded the winner of the 2020 AI Breakthrough Awards for the Best Image Processing Solution.

The First AI Company to Receive B Corp Certification

B Corps are companies that use business as a force for good. B Corp certification is a measurement certified by B Lab, a non-profit company that measures a company’s social and environmental performance. We’ve accomplished our goals in large part as a result of our supportive community, but it doesn’t stop there. We’re looking forward to continuing our commitment to making a lasting impact on the world and improving the lives of as many as possible.

Proven by MIT Through a Joint Randomized Control Trial

Rigorous, ongoing assessment of impact has always been part of our model. Now, our model is proven by the gold standard in research, an RCT. This RCT assessed the effectiveness of our impact hiring and training programs. It proves that our impact model is making a difference, providing significantly higher long term employment rates and earnings.


Aligned With the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Created as part of a resolution passed by the UN General Assembly, Agenda 2030, the SDGs are designed to be a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. We contribute to and are measuring progress against the following SDGs: #1 No Poverty, #5 Gender Equality, #8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, #10 Reduced Inequalities #13 Climate Action.

Handouts are not going to end global poverty. But work–dignified, living wage work–just might.
