Participate in the Women in Data Science (WiDS) Worldwide Conference

Women in Data Science (WiDS) aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field. Join the 24-hour virtual data science conference on March 8, and save the date for Lane Library’s regional WiDS event on May 5.

WiDS started as a one-day technical conference at Stanford in November 2015. Five years later, WiDS is a global movement that includes a number of worldwide initiatives:

  • A conference with 150+ regional events worldwide in more than 60 countries, reaching 100,000 participants annually online and in person.
  • A datathon, encouraging participants to hone their skills using a social impact challenge. 
  • A podcast series, featuring data science leaders from around the world talking about their work, their journeys, and lessons learned along the way
  • An education outreach program to encourage secondary school students to consider careers in data science, artificial intelligence (AI), and related fields.

You can get involved with WiDS by registering for the inaugural 24-hour virtual conference on March 8, International Women’s Day. The conference will include speakers from around the world talking about their research, their work, and their journeys, as well as workshops on latest data science skills from world-class instructors.

On May 5, Lane Library will host our third annual regional WiDS event. Save the date for our virtual panel highlighting the work of female researchers and data scientists in medicine. More details to follow!
