The Women in Data Science (WiDS) initiative aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field.
WiDS Miami 2020 will take place on March 9th at the University of Miami’s Watsco Center.
WiDS started as a conference at Stanford in November 2015. Now, WiDS includes a global conference, with approximately 150+ regional events worldwide; a datathon, encouraging participants to hone their skills using a social impact challenge; and a podcast, featuring leaders in the field talking about their work, their journeys, and lessons learned. This conference provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science-related research in a number of domains, learn how leading-edge companies are leveraging data science for success, and connect with potential mentors, collaborators, and others in the field. All genders are invited to participate in the conference, which features exclusively female speakers.
This year’s Women in Data Science (WiDS) Miami will be an even more empowering and insightful event yet! If you are a woman/gender minority in data science looking for a platform to share your rise, transition into, or accomplishments in the field of data science, we’d love to hear from you! Talks should aim to educate on topics related to data science and empower women to take on roles in this transformative field. The floor is yours!
